Participating in the col connecté 06 yesterday in Valberg.
I slept near the pass and attempted the climb this morning.
Uneven ascent with big assholes and rest areas.
A must do

Participant au col connecté 06 hier à Valberg.
Je dors à proximité du col et je tente l'ascension ce matin.
Montée irrégulière avec de gros coups de cul et des zones de repos .
A faire absolument

One of the most beautiful passes in the Alps: the finish at the foot of the Aiguilles de Pelens is extraordinary! A very demanding climb, especially as the most difficult part is at the end.

Un des plus beau col des Alpes : ue final au pied des Aiguilles de Pelens est extraordinaire ! Montée très exigeante, surtout que la partie la plus difficile est à la fin.

Really hard this one, steep from start to finish. I couldn't get into a good rhythm anywhere, very hard riding. Lots of curves, especially in the beginning. Fortunately, there is a restaurant halfway where I could have lunch. At the top it is a bit of a search to find out where the real top is. But a phenomenal view. The descent to Colmars is nice, beautiful terraces and a long piece through the woods. At the bottom you are suddenly at a crossroads with a busy road. Right into the village, left to the Col d'Allos, the third climb of the day. Glad that this one is over. I will not do it again soon.

Echt zwaar deze, steil van begin tot einde. Ik kon nergens goed in een ritme komen, heel lastig rijden. Veel bochten, zeker in het begin. Gelukkig is er halverwege een restaurant waar ik lekker kon lunchen. Boven is het even zoeken naar waar de echte top nou is. Wel een fenomenaal uitzicht. De afdaling naar Colmars is leuk, prachtige terrassen en een lang stuk door het bos. Beneden sta je ineens op een kruising met een drukke weg. Rechtsaf het dorp in, linksaf naar de Col d'Allos, de derde klim van de dag. Blij dat deze achter de rug is. Ik zal hem niet snel nog eens doen.

Very nice climb which becomes more and more beautiful in the last 5 km (the most difficult). We had the chance to go through the meadows covered with flowers: a dazzling sight :-)
It's worth going through Cayolle - les champs - Allos

Très belle montée qui devient de plus en plus belle dans les 5 derniers km (les plus difficiles). Nous avons eu la chance d'y passer avec les prairies couvertes de fleurs: un spectacle éblouissant :-)
Cela vaut la peine d'y passer en enchainant Cayolle - les champs - Allos

Tricky! Especially when it comes after the Col d'Allos and the Col de la Cayolle. Where those two cols are rather gradual, this one is steep from the start and hardly has any rest points. I'll think twice before doing this one again. (I am not such a trained cyclist). The descent to Colmars is very nice (a bit bumpy in the beginning, then a nice winding path through the forest, which seems to go on forever).

Lastig!! Zeker als ie na de Col d'Allos en de Col de la Cayolle komt. Waar die twee cols eerder geleidelijk oplopen, is het hier van meet af aan een steile beklimming met eigenlijk nauwelijks rustpunten. Ik zal me nog twee keer overpeinzen vooraleer ik deze nog eens doe. (ik ben dan ook geen zo'n getrainde fietser). De afdaling naar Colmars is dan weer erg leuk (in het begin wat hobbelig, daarna toffe slingerende baantjes door het bos, waar geen eind lijkt aan te komen).
