CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Col du Sapey from the west

Ride 9.4 kilometers gaining 702 meters at 7.5% average grade.

This is a magnificent and fun climb out of La Tour-en-Maurienne, just north of the great world cycling hub of Saint Jean de Maurienne.  This is our favorite of the secondary HC climbs around Saint Jean.

Looking north and down towards La Tour-en-Maurienne from one of the earlier hairpins of the climb.

This climb is very remote - we encountered 0 vehicles while we made the climb.

There are 25 hairpins on this short climb.

While this climb is little known, it has a great set of features at the top.  The phrase “le grand domaine cyclable du monde” means “the great cycling area of the world” in French, and we wholeheartedly agree.
