Ride Type: 
Route Napoleon

The South of France offers great biking all year.

In summer, my favourite is the Route Napoleon through the mountains. Sweeping bends are followed by scenery changes ranging from mountain views to white water canyons and colourful lavender fields.

In winter, the road between Monaco and St. Tropez is unbeatable. You follow an empty coastal road with red rocks on one side and the blue sea on the other.
