The D902/D2202 connects Barcelonnette in the department of Alpes de Haute Provence with St. Martin d’Entraunes in the department of Alpes Maritime, and crosses the Cayolle which lies parallel to Col de la Bonette and Col d’Allos. It’s a fantastic bikers road and on the way up the southern ramp you pass the source of the River Var. On the northern ramp the road is much narrower – mostly single track – but the scenery is stunning as the road runs down a gorge through which the River Bachelard runs down to Barcelonnette.
