This a classic climb by bike from Longville Haute near the ski and mountain bike resort of Metabief. The big challenge is the 19% finish so start slowly and save some energy and leg power and preferably have a triple or big cassette on your drive train!
I was astounded at how steep the road was after the restaurant but by zig zagging a bit I managed to stay on my bike and reached the car park albeit a little out of breath. from there you are best to leave your beloved bike and walk the last bit to the summit from where the view is breathtaking!
