Product Description

Part 6 of The Route des Grandes Alpes (Great Alpine Road), the ultimate cycling dream. This climb is popular popular among race bikers. The scenery is nice. The climb starts near the hamoc of Les Gleizolles, at the bifurcation of the D902 and the D900. Up to the village of St-Paul the road lies in the valley of the Ubaye river and is of very mild steepness (an average of 2.5%). At St-Paul, with 8 km to go, the climb really begins. The steepest part (up to 12%) is found in the hair pin turns after Melezen, and after that the final 3 kilometers remain relatively steep (around 9%). Beautiful views on La Grande Combe (2938 m) open to the left. A bar with terrace awaits the cyclist at the col.
