Sospel is the day’s target. So... it’s through Comps-s-Artuby and the Col de Clavel (1060m) onto the D2 towards Vence.
Then via Grègolieres to the Col de Vence (963m) – a bikeroad par excellence. Good enough to make one turn back and do it again.
While easy to find the way from Vence to Carros (as we decided to bypass Nice) things got trickier along those tiny and tiniest roads to the Col de Braus. But well worth it, the roads are gems.
Via Aspremont, Tourrette-Levens and Contes it’s across the Col de Nice (412m) to l’Escarène at the bottom of hairpin-heaven, Col de Braus (1002m).
Col de Braus
Final pass of the day is the Col St. Jean (612m) into Sospel....with 10 Marks per bend today, we’d all be multi-millionaires tonight.
