A top French climb beginning in the lovely little ski town of Isola that winds its way through a canyon to, through a ski resort, up through wide open range land to the French/Italian border.
Start in the quaint Ski town of Isola
Ride through deep canyon on the way to Isola 2000 Ski Resort (below)
The climb is manageable, but is not a slouch at 7.1% average grade for a healthy 12.4 miles. The steepest mile is 9.3% and there is an 11% ¼ mile stretch. This is a fun climb that is worth your while if you are in the Nice and southeastern area of France. This is also a high hairpin zone with roughly 42 of those beauties on the way to the Italian border.
