Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Galibier by the old route like the first riders of the Tour de France. Really MAGNIFICENT to do !!! and do it again !!!
Memory of cycling: The riders reached the GALIBIER pass by climbing the old road, almost impracticable today. This old, very difficult road started 2 km down from the LAUTARET pass towards Briançon (N 91), immediately to the left after the bridge over the GALIBIER stream. The new road (D 902), was opened in 1938. The monument "Henri DESGRANGE" dates from 1949. The old refuge was built between 1870 and 1880. The new refuge dates from 1937.
