Sport, Cycling sports, Cycle tourism route in La Turbie
  • The cyclosportive itinerary from Roquebrune Cap Martin to La Turbie is part of a larger itinerary from Roquebrune Cap Martin to Menton.

    From the old village of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, the view of the sea is splendid and even more striking at La Turbie. A visit to the Trophée des Alpes is recommended. The road that leads to Peille is a series of curves and tunnels. Cross the village through the old streets rather than the road to admire the fountain in the central square. The following section is bordered by a wild and lush nature. After L'Escarène, the climb up the daunting laces of the Col de Braus begins. A technical descent leads you to Sospel and the Saint-Roch fort, which is a remarkable element of the Maginot line.

    After the Col de Castillon, the descent to Menton begins before returning to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. Recommended departure from the car park at the entrance to the old village.

    The Roquebrune Cap Martin to La Turbie route is 10km long. In Roquebrune Cap Martin there are 187m of difference in altitude and in La Turbie there are 420m of positive difference in altitude. There are about 10km between the two.
    From the sea to the mountains, this route crosses a variety of landscapes, from granite rocks to alpine meadows, passing through Mediterranean pine forests and perched villages.
