  1. Thanks again for sharing your adventures Vince. I’ve ridden up the other side a few times and always wondered what this side was like, now I know! Having such good weather and light traffic certainly makes for a great ride. The Bonneval side is a little wilder and if you use Lanslebourg as a base you have the two nice climbs of Mt. Cenis and Plan du Lac on your doorstep.

    1. Hi Martin, thanks for your comment.

      I think I was lucky with the lack of traffic for some reason. Maybe because it was end of September as opposed to late May. Given the conditions on my aborted ride last year I can’t honestly recommend this particular route, unless you want to do it from Pont Saint-Charles.

      I’m glad to hear the other side is wilder – I prefer that. And thanks for the recommendations for the other rides that side. They’re on my list.
