Col d’AllosBy Will • Jul 26th, 2006 • Category: Climbs, Cycling, Doreen, Favorites
5th big climb in five days as our Southern Alps adventure continues. This may be the most scenic Col we have ever ridden.
Starting from Barcelonnette in the South Alps this little sinuous road climbs along side a cliff high above a steep canyon and then hairpins over the mountain towards the mediterranean 100kms away.
North Climb (Blue): 21 kms (13.8 miles); Ascent: 1,150 metres (3,770 feet)
South Climb (Red): 23.6 kms (14.7 miles); Ascent: 1,050 metres (3,445 feet)
