Col de Vars – 2,108m

Route: D902 Barcelonnette to Guillestre (46 miles)

Coordinates: 44.538878,6.702834

Ridden: 2008 & 2013

The D902 connects St. Paul sur Ubaye with Guillestre and takes you from the Ubaye valley to the Queyras valley via this col. Both ramps are nice to ride although when we first rode it in 2008 the southern ramp was undergoing a lot of resurfacing. In typical French fashion this seemed to involve throwing a lot of loose gravel over the road. The northern ramp is nice with a particular good section down to/up from Guillestre – a good section for those with knee down capability.
