Start:  Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, Savoie, France

This ride approaches Col du Glandon from the north and is considered to be the 'tougher' of the two ascents of Glandon. From Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne it is a short ride north to Saint-Etienne-de-Cuines from where the 21km ascent begins. The road initially follows a mountain stream and passes through forest before continuing above the tree line. This is a tough ascent with an average gradient of 6.9% though the last 2 kilometers of the Glandon climb exceed 10%. From the Col proceed to Croix de Fer and enjoy the long descent back to Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, riding the same route home.
