The south of the Alps is just THE best place for cycling. Dry climate, desert roads and mythical pass.
Everyone knows Le Col du Noyer, le Col de Chabre or le Col de Mens, but there are plenty of other passes less known and as nice and difficult as the first ones, like the Col de Carabès, the Col d’Espréaux, and for sure one of the toughest climb in France : Le Mont Colombis.
You will go across landscapes from the Alps to Provence, will enjoy the nice smell of Thym, Lavander or Rosemarin. From April, the warm climate of Provence allows you long bike rides. You will never forget the view when reaching Gap from the Col du Noyer, or when going trough Les Gorges de la Méouge with your bike.
