Great road with marvelous scenery especially at the way from Laruns up to Col Du Purtalet where the France / Spain borders are. The Spain side has lot of great open corners for fast riding.
I took this route as part of an itinerary and really enjoyed myself ! It is full of bends, so its not a road for speeding !!! The scenery (trees and small valleys) is nice, though I had to admit I was mostly concentrated on the road and the bends as I drove quite sportively... I never enjoyed bends much as on that road ! The fact that the road was of good quality, made the pleasure even more intense !!
