près de Esparron-de-Verdon, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (France)
Beautiful cycling route through the southern French Maritime Alps. It starts at Esparron-de-Verdon, by the lake d'Esparron, a great place to go for a swim. It continues crossing a couple of times the Verdon river and accompanying the lake Sainte-Croix, in which it is also possible to take a bath. From here it starts a tough climb (via Aiguines; attention, because from here to the next inhabited place there are about 38km) to the top of the Verdon Canyon, the deepest and probably the most spectacular in Europe. The track continues parallel to the canyon for about 20km, until it finally crosses it trough high bridge, famous for being a great place to do bungee jumping. From here it enters an area of broad and beautiful valleys, small villages and spectacular views. To conclude with a steep descent to the city of Nice.
