Combe Loval to Chamaloc

54.7KM
↑ 1251-1500m


Frequently recognized as the most magnificent road in the French Alps, this road through Combe Laval was constructed between 1861 and 1898 and originally served for the transportation of timber from the Forêt de Lente to St-Jean-en-Royans (France). It’s one of the French balcony roads. The road was carved out here (with the end of the work in 1898), not for the view, but to make the forestry activity profitable.

    I’m giving a harsh rating, as I’m sure there’s a fair bit of effort to add this. But there are too many mini-bumps in this, with sudden 15-25% incline/decline for just a few meters. I’m guessing these are slightly inaccurate data points that need smoothing out? It made for a heavy ride. Also, there was a small detour; would be nice to remove that.
