I have rode the Madeleine twice now from La Chambre in 2012 and 2013 and each time it was deceptively tough. The gradient is continuous with no let up and the last few km from the ski resort to the top were some of the hardest I''ve done. One of the toughest but enjoyable climbs in the Alps. A must do :-)

I rode up the Col de la Madeleine from La Chambre on a cold misty day in Julu 2011 (28th). I really love this climb for its varied gradient climbing up through the cloud and beyond the ski station to the top. Everything an Alpine climb should be.

Did this climb on the 16th of June (2012) and what an impression it made. It''s heavy, but beautiful. And when you reach the top a gorgeous view on the Alpes is there to welcome you. Try it!
