Traffic on the French Riviera is a part of life here. With 13,000,000 travelers each year vying for their patch of sunlight and peace it can be tricky to find the ‘real’ French Riviera by bike.
I pride myself on alternate routes of the classic climbs like La Madone, Col d’Eze and the Col de Braus and place the emphasis on avoiding traffic and cars.
The climb of La Madone can be approached in many ways and a cheeky afternoon ride of La Madone can be taken from Peille, a small village known as one of the most ‘curious’ in France. Why I’m not sure but it is stunningly placed with the local coffee shop inside a cave. To be experienced at least once in your life!
