Stories, information and comments from Mont Tendre climbers
Story by Mike Ayukawa from Lausanne, Switzerland, submitted on 06/04/2007
My co-worker and I use this hill as our fitness calibration climb since we live within 15km of the base. Ive been up it 5 times in the last year and my times this season are improving. That said, I dont think Im ready for anything much more than this; Im pretty bagged by the time I get to the summit. But maybe thats the idea. The traffic is low to non-existent since it is not a pass but just access to the summit. On a clear day you can get a view of Mont Blanc that is superb. Pavement is in good condition like most Swiss roads. Easy access to the base via car, train (to Montricher), and by bike. Ive only ridden to the base, a pleasant warm up from Lausanne. In the winter of 2006/2007 the lack of snow allowed riding into late November but I was told this was quite abnormal. Good riding!
