Are there any "classic", highly regarded, or even little known gem climbs around Lausanne - within range of Lausanne, maybe maximum 60-80 km out so it could be ridden in a day with Lausanne as a base, ideally closer to Lausanne the better!

I'm not sure if this is off-topic, for me this is a cycling question and the help pages gave no guidance on this sort of question and similar questions appear to have been asked previously... List of UK hill climbs.

  • I've been around that area a bit, but not as a cyclist. There are none of your classic TdF climbs around there, they're all quite some way further south, but it is a good area for riding in general, and of course it is naturally hilly.

Since I have not ridden in Lausanne, I rely upon Stava. I don't know if you can follow the links posted below without being a member, if not then you can join up for free.

Once on Stava, going to the Activity Search page, I enter Lausanne, Switzerland and hit search.

A few interesting rides come up ... there are many others too ...

  • That's great, hadn't tried the activity search - segment search had also thrown out a few candidates. Those routes look really tempting!

  • Maybe you could post your rides later?
