Once we get to the top of the climb, we'll take a scenic detour to a 19th century fortress, where stunning views await. Our ride then brings us down to Menton, where we start the classic 13.6 km Col de la Madone, taking us from sea level to 926 meters, before descending past the picturesque village of Peille to join the Grande Corniche with its breathtaking sea views as we head back to Nice.

This 20.7 km pass with an average gradient of 5.7% was featured in the Tour de France 5 times and is also known for its yearly appearance in the Monte Carlo Rally. Once we reach the summit, it's all downhill and flat going back to Nice.
