Villars is located mid-way up the Col de la Croix, the essential climb for cyclists in the region. After reaching the summit, there’s a long descent to Aigle before you climb back up to Villars via Bex.
With a change in level of nearly 1200 m, the Col de la Croix (1778 m) is one of the toughest passes in Switzerland. This route starting from Villars splits the climb into two, starting with the final part through the alpine meadows (8 km). You then cycle down to Aigle (km 37) and back to Bex (km 47). You might choose to refuel here before tackling the climb back up to Villars through Gryon (km 58). This climb is a classic of the Tour de Romandie.
Tip: Admire the view of Grand Muveran (3051 m) as you climb back up to Gryon to take your mind off the tiredness setting in!
