The climb up the French side is relentless with bend after bend of reasonably fast
open tarmac. Expect some traffic including coaches and slow camper vans.
The surface is good but expect some road works.
The summit road is narrow and twisty with some amazing views.
It’s great fun to ride briskly but hard not to have your focus
and concentration drawn to the amazing views.
The ride down the Italian side has lots of switchback hairpins
so expect to use your brakes a lot but is a great ride down
a well surfaced road.
