  • We cycled up Telegraphe and then up Galibier. Awesome! There's a cafe part way up Galibier which we got to just before it closed. Other than that, it's a beautiful winding road ascending up to a spectacular view. We got to the top at 7pm and there was no-one else there except loads of marmots scurrying around. There is a small car park at the top and a footpath that takes you even higher. It's an amazing place and well worth a visit.
  • Great route for the motorbike but really rough from the bad weather. Could do with some maintenance.
