Mont du Chat

1230 Points - With the steepest consecutive 10 km in France (9.9%), the Mont du Chat is a must for mountain bikers! At the summit, enjoy breath-taking views over the Lac du Bourget. The climb is lined with kilometre markers. Further information available at the Tourist Office.

Despite being the second most sustained climb in the entire Alps, averaging 9.96% for 10 km, the Mont du Chat is one of Savoie Mont Blanc’s best guarded cycling secrets. Once at the top, you can relax in front of the café while contemplating the superb views across Lake Bourget, the Bauges Mountains and the Belledonne Chain.
