An exceptional ride, on any bike, cruise it or blitz it - just a never ending series of corners - really tight at first then it just gets better and better. Only a few villages along the route but the first 35k's there is only 4. Stop off at the top of the Bracco Pass at the Hotel/Bar La Baracca (18k's). At weekends all the local bikers meet up here. On the way back visit the Cinqe Terre (Five Lands/Villages) down the tightest silliest of country lanes I have ever seen you will find some of the most pleasant little fishing villages in Italy.
The famous la Bonnette road, believed to be the highest pass in Europe. Spectacular views and a great view from the top.
The environment here is wonderful and the road winds and twists along the coast of the French riveria. Can be some tourist traffic but it shouldn't prevent you enjoying it.
An often overlooked little gem of a road, constant cornering with swoopy climbs and descents. Most route finders will either send you round the motorway (boring) or round the coast road (too busy). The locals know about this road so expect to see little hatchbacks travelling very quickly, and watch for cyclists torturing themselves up the climbs. A superb shortish (by French standards) blast, not to be missed if you're in the area, not found in many guides because not many people know about it (until now).
Absolutely stunning piece of coast road - not a single straight section. The road twists and turns its way along the Costa Brava coast for 13 miles, and at the end you'll want to turn back and do it all over again. Loads of places to stop and take in the scenery, lovely smooth tarmac, and if you do it on a summer's evening no traffic. Bumped into another Brit biker who said it was more fun than the Nurburgring!!
