Story by Chris Patient from Geneva, Switzerland, submitted on 30/06/2017 12:38:47
Ideally one would have two bikes to climb the Col de Crozet by bike: a nice light carbon road bike for the paved section and a cross country mountain bike for the second section of bone jarring limestone track to the top. I did it on an old rigid steel mountain bike with tyres pumped up hard to 4 bar. The forest track is brutal with two very steep and difficult ramps to the top where one is rewarded with a fantastic view. I continued on to Faucille and descended by road to make a fantastic loop. Highly recommended.

Ideally you want two bikes for The Col de Crozet. A nice light carbon road bike for the relatively good tarmac on the steeper first section; and then a plush soft tail full suss mountain bike for the long gradual rocky unsurfaced forest part of the road to the top. I did it on a retro steel 26 inch steel steed with fat tyres pumped up to 4 bar. To climb The Col de Crozet by bike is brutal on any bike especial the last two steep rocky ramps that are quite a challenge to ride. The view from the top is well worth the effort however. There is a ceramic orientation table up there fenced off to keep the cows away. I chose not to descend the same way so as to avoid the jarring road on my rigid mountain bike and went up and over to the Faucille which was a fantastic long descent. Well recommended.

Story by gpw from Prevessin-moens, France, submitted on 01/07/2011
Very nice climb starting in Crozet with a paved road between the altitude of 550 to 900 meter with slope of 9 % in the first part of the climb and an average of 8 %. Then it turns into a gravel road which has up to the top at 1480 m an average slope of 7.3 %. beyond the tree line at 1300 meter you have a very rewarding view over the alps and lake Geneva. From this point the route becomes more uneven with 2 or 3 short steep sections before reaching the col. If you want to stress your muscles more, there is a shortcut between the 1100 to 1300 meter points passing Le Fierney, with a gradient of about 15 %. Overall a nice climb by mountainbike.
