Description

Meyronne is a tiny mountain hamlet with a lovely cafe that is popular with the motorcyclists who seem to love this area and its seven cols.

From here you drop down to cross the rowdy Ubayette River on a high bridge, then start climbing up a steep road that would be miserably eroded and loose if they hadn't concreted this section--yay! When you near the top of the climb, you have the option to detour over a few kilometers to visit one of the Maginot Line structures: Fort de Roche la Croix.

The concrete ends and you continue following a dirt road through the forest, with great wildflowers and occasional views of the dramatic canyon as you descend a series of steep switchbacks to regain the valley floor near the confluence of the Ubayette with the Ubaye River. Pedal a stretch of the D900 until breaking left onto a dirt road that parallels the river until it crosses it and the D900 again. Work your way into the hills and back down to Jausiers.

The narrow road above the Ubayette River, going right toward the Col du Larche; and the road heading to Col du Var on the left.

Wind howling on Col, so we rode Meyronne to the confluence of the Ubayette with the Ubaye.
