Profile Gros

The ascent from the N94 at Gare d'Eygliers to Gros is well suited as a short training ride. The tour bridges almost 500 elevation meters and includes a steepest section of two and a half kilometers in length, starting just past the village of Eygliers, with a gradient of 8-10%. The climb has two great charms: almost no traffic and splendid views of the mountains all around including the Écrins, on Guillestre, on Mont-Dauphin, a fortress from the time of Louis XIV, and on the Guil, the river that forms the axis of the Queyras. Over the last two kilometers the asphalt surface is miserable.
