ETAPE de LEGENDE 2007

 

The Route

 

Starting at Strasbourg, the route is 210 km long, crossing the Vosges Plateau to the Ballon d’Alsace.

 

There are 5 major climbs and a few minor ones. The route climbs Col de Kreusweg ( pinnacle 766m),  Col de Freland (831m), Col de Linge (975m), Col de Breitirst (1282m) before the last, pleasantly wooded climb of Ballon d’Alsace (1178m).

 

Though there are plenty of climbs, the altitudes are less extreme than the Alpes or the Pyrenees!
