    Come and discover, as on the other courses, the coastal path between Chanteloube Bay and St-Michel Bay, the Curattes belvedere, the Chapelle St Michel... But at kilometer 14, cross the majestic Chanteloube viaduct (submerged in summer) for a 9.8km climb for 800D+ non-stop! This ascent takes you along the superb "Ruban" trail, with a view over the whole of Lac de Serre-Ponçon on the Durance valley side: from the Hyvans to Embrun, with the Ecrins mountains in the background!
    ATTENTION suspens.... Mid-May is exactly the time when the lake level rises to around the coast of the Chanteloube viaduct.
