It is the true majesty of all Alpine roads! The Route des Grandes Alpes leads us bikers directly into motorcycle heaven! This is of course ensured by the 16 passes over the almost 700 kilometres from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean. But also a landscape that changes abruptly often enough, a surface that promises (and keeps) the best grip or simply the fact that there is hardly any traffic on long stretches of this heavenly route.
