1,850 positive meters
Mountain ports: Col Saint Martin (1,500m) – Col de Turini (1,607m) – Col de Castillon (706m)
We have crossed the Vésubie Valley to climb the last “big” port of this “great” route, the Col du Turini (1,607m) with its 1,100 meters of altitude, archi famous for the Monte Carlo Rally, and a luxury descent that It has made us start to feel the pleasure that the end point is near.
After the town of Sospel, we had only one small ports that, without being very difficult, reminded us that our legs were already very tired after of the whole week. With a little more effort we have overcome the Col de Castillon and the Col d’Eze, to find ourselves face to face with the Mediterranean Sea to plummet down to Menton.
We did it! We have finished this great alpine route, being aware that we were doing one of the best road bike integral traverse in the world.
The final point: an ice cold beer and a well deserved bath to summarize the happiness that we feel at this moment.
