Col de la Cayolle, Barcelonnette – FR

In Bucketlist, France, Mountains, Short Rides, Tablet IOS/Android by PhilLeave a Comment

Probably the most scenic ride filmed in 2016 & a really amazing ride for anyone interested in cycling the Alps. Starts just north of Barcelonnette with a long gorge ride that leads to a higher alpine Valley. Eventually you will take a right turn & start climbing through pine forests & out onto the final section with some amazing views of the Maritime Alpes. This climb also has one of the best descents in the collection.  The profile is not too hard staying below 9%  for most of it & with the harder sections being fairly short & spaced out.
