Col de l’Arpettaz – 1,580m

Route: Via Route des Montagnes Ugine to Flumet (22 miles)

Coordinates: 45.7968997,6.4336919

Ridden: 2008 & 2010

We only rode this twisty little out of the way pass because the main road between Ugine and Flumet – the D1212 – was shut for roadworks. We just followed the diversion signs and found ourselves on it. It was so twisty that it actually took us a long time to get past a local Harley rider – oh the shame of it! It was pleasant enough but nothing to write home about and certainly not worth the detour.
