Location: D1091/D902 Briancon to Col du Galibier (22 miles)
The Col du Lautaret is located on the D1091, the main road that links Grenoble to the west with Briancon to the east. It’s barely recognisable as a col and sits on the junction at the foot of the Col du Galibier. Being a main route for travel between France and Italy it remains open virtually all year round although this also means it tends to be quite busy. On a bike this won’t delay you for very long though as the road is wide and very well surfaced.
