23,40 km cycling route from Col d'Allos to Colmars

Quite logically, the Grande Traversée VTT TransVerdon starts at the very source of the Verdon River, at the watershed separating it from the Ubaye Valley, at 2247m in altitude. Take in the deeply mountainous atmosphere on the 6km descent via trails through larch woods to Allos. A 350m climb by road allows riders to reach a stretch across high-perched Alpine meadows with ease, with, as backdrop, the Mont Pelat and further Mercantour peaks. Riding at such high altitude, cyclists should be in peak physical form!
