Two-times Bonette makes for a challenging day of high-mountain beauty and appreciation for one of the Alps’ finest roads.
The gravel equivalent of Mont Ventoux. Three sides to climb, a chapel, an old mine, a lookout tower and a deserted village. Mont Férion is a gravel wonderland.
Nice’s Bald Mountain offers perhaps the best view of the town. A lesser known and easily under-estimated local gem.
The Route des Cols has been a badly kept secret amongst the other sporting disciplines that practice their follies in the Estérel national park.
Linking two classic Alpes-Maritimes cols via a gravel ridge-line ride on a loop that takes you from portside to the heart of the mountains and back again.
The jewel in the crown of Mallorcan cycling. Ride the ridgelines of the Tramuntana mountains and plunge down to the sea before tackling one of the Island’s toughest tests.
From the beach, through the marshes, to the fields of rural interior Mallorca. A gravel ride that delivers a slice of local life.
Escape the city, scale the mountain, savour the scenery. Coll de Sóller delivers a strong challenge in the middle of a great loop starting and finishing in Palma.
A loop right in the heart of the Island, in the shadows of the mountains finishing with rolling hills towards Inca.
Maybe the pièce de resistance of Mallorcan road engineering. An out-and-back ride like no other, plan it for sunset on the way back for some unforgettable Mallorcan cycling.
