Cycling the Route des Grand Alps: Traffic Delays on the D218

A 14-day bicycle trip from Annecy to Nice via the Route des Grand Alps. The road from Beaufort to Bourg St Maurice via the Cormet d’Areche is unpaved for 6km, so vehicles of any sort were rare. Still, traffic was delayed on the D218 for other reasons.
