Col de Braus

Col de Braus

Start your Col de Braus ascent by taking a a leisurely ride from Nice intersected with a warmup climb over the Col de Nice where you will find yourself passing through the beautiful village of L’Escarène and over a stone bridge just before the actual climb of the Col de Braus and the (many) switchbacks start.
The winding road takes you past cliff-faces and a high valley with otherworldly views towards the coast.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Either use Col de Braus as a warm-up for the big rides or as a finishing ride due to its forgiving nature. The scenery is very Southern France/Italy with its low trees and exposed rock.
Heading over the back of Col de Braus takes you to Sospel which can be perfect to refuel and then make a run to the Italian coast, then back to Nice via Monaco. This adds a good 2+ hours to the day so let me know if you would like to add this extra kick!
