Cycling Col d'Ornon from La Paute (north side) - 1373 metres

In preparation for our Alpe d'Huez ride, Esther headed out of Bourg d'Oisans to try this other nearby climb, the Col d'Ornon. Starting just a few of kilometres away from it's much more famous neighbour the ascent is 11.1 km long with an average gradient of 5.8%, which sounds easy but as usual is made up of various steep bits and easy bits. As you can see from the pictures below it is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area as the climb is very pretty in its own right, so any comparison to Alpe d'Huez would be unfair. Also, if you felt so inclined, it would be possible to put together a pretty large and taxing loop by taking in the Col d'Ornon.



Here are some of Esther's pictures.....
