For those who love cycling this is a mandatory spot, you have to climb it. The chanlenge and the views are the top of the tops! Grab a coat before your ride, the descent is always cold!

Most all cyclists know this famous climb and it's a must-do on the 'bucket list". I have climbed tis beast twice - once in the snow last June and another in perfect conditions this July. Conditions can vary so beware!

I came here at the end of July/Early August and there was snow at the top of the pass. It was very, VERY cold at the top and I would highly advise you layer up. I would post a picture but it wont let me.
