Road Cycling Highlight
Bloody hard - the gradient goes up in ramps and is not steady and the road is exposed to the sun all day so gets very hot. No real hairpins to break up the difficulty. But it’s all worth it for the 360 degree views from the top!

One of the most beautiful Pyrenean passes.
Almost 18 km of ascent, first along the Lys valley in "straight line", then after a hairpin bend the climb to the pass itself and hairpin bends that follow one another. Long portions at 9/11% with a few dishes or slopes at 4%.
