I visit Alpe D"Huez with my wife and I start my ride from the hotel toward the Col De Sarenne for first time. from Alpe D"Huez to Col De Sarenne are 9Km and not very hard. the road are in very bad condition. there is a restaurant on the top of the mountain. during the downhill the road in very good condition. I enjoy the downhill because is long and in some part very long and you can reach very high speed because the road in the last part are very good. high recommended..
