Having completed the Cingles and got my name on their website list, im wondering if there are any other versions out there? Such as on D'Huez, Tourmalet etc?

Im planning on getting through them all anyway, but would be interesting to know if the Cingles is totally unique in that way.

Anyone?

    Four times up Grand Colombier and you become a "loon". Think of it as doing the Cingle, then having to run up from Sault one last time. Except this time it has a max gradient of 22%
  • pah - you've not even finished with the Ventoux. What about doing all 4 ascents?

    Thanks! That looks interesting!

    Since we began the Cingles training the forth goat track climb never appealed to any of us. The Bicinglette would be the next step, but in all honesty it may be a step too far!

    Planned next are double ascents of D'Huez and Tourmalet, but this "fele" looks a decent shout sometime soon!
