Leaving from the picturesque town of Annot, this is a real sawtooth circuit with many passes to climb.

104 km
Very Hard

Follow in the footsteps of the world’s greatest champions on these mythical cols covered by the Tour de France, and your efforts will be rewarded by a breathtaking view of the Lac de Castillon on the descent of the Col de Toutes Aures. From Saint-André-les-Alpes, head for Barrême and the Asse Tartonne valley, then the Col du Défend, a wild road that takes you to Thorame-Haute for a refreshment stop at the fresh water fountains. Finally, a final effort on the Col de la Colle-Saint-Michel with its large pine forests to the summit, a heavenly landscape dotted with thyme. A descent with views over the Méailles plateau and the Vaïre valley before reaching d’Annot. A mountain trail to be savoured with sport
