If you’d like to discover the routes and legendary cols in and around Les Gets, take a look at our guidelines and safety reminders to be observed on the roads.

For a comfortable ride...

Before setting off, plan your route and get everything you need ready! Take something to eat and drink with you. Taken some warm clothes for the descents and lightweight clothing to change into after long climbs.

For long rides, a charged telephone, a whistle and a survival blanket are essential. A small, basic first-aid kit with a few antiseptic compresses, plasters, anti-blister plasters and an elastic band can be useful.

Safety reminders

— Remember that the Highway Code applies to all road users, at all times.
— Use cycle paths when possible. On winding roads, do not cut the corners.
— Take a repair kit with you should you have a mechanical problem (puncture or a broken chain).
— Routes are not marked. We recommend looking at a local road map to guide you.
— Cyclists take the route at their own risk and this website cannot be held liable.
— Accompanying vehicles cannot drive at the same speed as you. Organise meet-up points along the route.
— Show respect for the environment by not throwing food waste on the side of the road.
— Wear a helmet! Be attentive to the weather as conditions can change rapidly in the mountains!
— Tell someone which route you are taking before setting off. Please note the international emergency number: 112 (from a mobile).

Marking the way...

When climbing certain cols or peaks, cyclists can use the information provided along the route by specific distance markers which give details of the altitude, remaining number of kilometres to the summit and the average gradient of the kilometre ahead. These markers can be found on all climbs in the Aulps valley: Col de Joux Plane, Col de la Ramaz, Montée du Chéry, Montée d’Avoriaz, Joux Verte from Montriond, Tréchauffé from the Route des Grandes Alpes (CD 902), l’Encrenaz from Essert-Romand... as well as when climbing other cols in Haute-Savoie!
