Anatole starts his route from Les Diablerets: a ride of about sixty kilometres that goes in a loop. With a cumulative elevation gain of around 1,500 metres, the highest point of the ascent is Col de la Croix, which peaks at an altitude of 1,778 metres. The stages:
Les Diablerets - Le Sépey - Aigle - Ollon - Villars - Col de la Croix - Les Diablerets.The highlights of the route
- The panoramas between the vines and mountains not far from Lake Geneva.
- The many cafés that offer a break along the route, particularly Chez Francine on the summit of Col de la Croix. His advice: enjoy a big slice of the house pie!
- The final zig-zag of Col de la Croix is Anatole’s favourite place on the course, as the view opens up to all sides and the summit is close by.
