After the first day of rest, the pack will face a tough mountain stage, with several major mountain passes. Among them is the Col de la Colombiere, which you will find in this session. An ascent of 7.8 km awaits you, with an average grade of 8.5%, and some sections verging on 17%. It’s a tough one. Get a good warm up, and don’t go out too hard.
A 31-km route through the Caledonia County in the US state of Vermont. Starting and ending at East Peacham, you will pedal along quiet roads, circling Lake Harvey. With lots of ups and downs, you will climb a total of some 600 m, making this a difficult ride.
Starting from the Catalonian town of Reus, you will start this route, on which you will climb the Coll de la Mussara. A 10-km mountain pass featuring constant grades, and one section with 180º curves. In this tough session through the province of Tarragona, you will ride 20 km, ascending 860 m.
From England, Chris shares this 30-km video route between the towns of Kidsgrove and Middlewich. The initial part is the toughest, with an initial 3 km uphill, but the rest of the ride is slightly downhill, save for just a few grades. A session devoid of great difficulties, on which you will get to explore Cheshire County, through which much of the route passes
