Road cycling in the Auvergne region
Cycling in a middle mountain area
The Auvergne region guarantees a varied road cycling holiday. Straight out of our accommodation in Le Mont-Dore the climbs to the Col de la Croix Morand, the Col de Guéry, the Col de Croix Saint Robert and the climb to La Stèle begin. And if that is not enough, at 5 km distance the climbs to the Col de Vendeix, the Col de la Sœur and the Banne d'Ordanche begin.
This all in very diverse landscapes. From rough plateaus, volcano landscapes to forests with fast-flowing streams. Short and longer rides, with a variety of terrains from a lot of climbs to less climbs, everything is possible.
Near to Les Camelias some climbs that are part of the 1000 so-called BIG climbs can be found: the Col de la Croix Saint-Robert, the Col de la Croix-Morand, the Col de Guéry, the Puy de Dôme and Col du Chevalard.
