Iron S - Good Morning! If you can climb with any bicycle with changes is totally paved except the last 300 mts that are with terraeria all the way the path is 100% ascent   . . did with my hybrid racing bike

Gonzalo Rodriguez Alaniz - Hi mtb Belfort lyon 1 x 11, if this asphalted, there is only one section of terraceria, 400 m. When you have an opportunity, let's go the wonderful route.

David Torres -  in total asphalted the road if you could climb with a road but I prefer the mtb
