Col de la Croix de Fer or Pass of the Iron Cross is a high mountain pass in the French Alps that links Le Bourg-d'Oisans and Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. Considered as a heaven for bikers, the pass has also been featured in the famous Tour de France annual bicycle race. There are quite a few routes for you to ride on and reach up to the summit, with each of the route welcoming you to an enthralling view of the snow-covered Alps, beckoning you to stop and admire their beauty. And the reward for all your efforts is standing beside the ancient iron cross, taking in the stupefying panoramic view of snow covered peaks. The refreshments at the café here will boost up your energy before you start the descent. Riding up and down through the mountainous terrain, the forest, and open meadows, with the cool breeze blowing across your face is an experience one should not miss.
