Route National from Bourg St Maurice to Moutiers is dangerous. Bike lanes badly maintained and lots of HGVs. Best to take the balcony road shown on the main page or the train service to Moutiers.
Damaged a rear wheel on a pothole in the cycle lane after Aime and blew out a rear tire. Luckily the bike shop in Moutiers was open and changed the tire. Had to walk 5km to Moutiers!
|Weather||Sunny, cold, some wind from the east. Snow from 1600 m although the road was dry. Descent to Bourg St Maurice at 2pm is largely in the shade.|
