Story by theus from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, submitted on 29/08/2014
Rewarding 10k climb. Nice views, good road and on the top one of the bluest lakes ever. Should have stopped at the Italian border in the descent, instead of going all the way down. The road back from Susa not so interesting, for the first 15-20k or so, with quite heavy traffic (on a sunday).

Story by T-Carl from Saint Louis, United States, submitted on 19/07/2010
Im an average cyclist, and the ascent took me 75 minutes, with one break at the very scenic overlook 8.5 km up. Down was 12 minutes! I rented a bike in Lansevillard - luckily it was a triple as most of the time I was in the easiest gear. Next time Ill bring my own shoes and pedals.
