One of my favourite rides. The journey from Nice airport along the A8 for a couple of k and the N202 is ok but pretty uninspiring. But once the road becomes the D2205 WOW !!! it's worth the wait. A beautiful road surface, some long sweeping bends, some very fast straights, lots of short tunnels in the mountains, cliff edges.....it's got the lot.Carry on the D2205 until you see the signs for Auron on the D39. I have ridden this road probably 30 times and never tire of it. Although you pass through a number of villages it's probably worth waiting until you get to Auron for a meal break, loads of choice and pretty competitive price wise. I have ridden up here in march before, stopped in Auron for the day, skied with friends and then ridden down mid afternoon. An absolute joy of a road.
