A bit off the radar this one, there are other better known ways to get to the Col de Rousset but this little road (D178) is a gem for corner carvers, not very long but you might want to go back and do it again just for the hell of it.

Best tackled North to South so you're doing the northern hairpin section uphill. Endless hairpins at the northern end, fast open section in the middle and some nice twisties on the southern end, a great road. Only problem we had on one run was melting tarmac with 40+ temperatures.
A recommended detour instead of taking the N85 south from Grenoble.

Gorge de la Bourne : Pont-en-Royans - Villard-de-Lans

Rhone-Alpes (inc. Lyon) ... > France > Europe

A road with great variety, the West part is fast and open leading into the tight twisty gorge section in the middle. The Eastern end has a section that is a bit bumpy but still great fun. The scenery along this road is stunning if you've got time to look at it, if you don't like heights don't look over the edge, there are some huge drops. Well worth a look for both those wanting a good blast and those looking at the scenery.

A great road which follows a steep river canyon. Mostly fast bends make it an exciting ride.

A great way of getting East-West from the Route Napoleon, fantastic if ridden fast, non stop corners end to end. If you fancy going a bit slower the scenery is stunning in the middle section, you also cross a very high bridge where they do bungee jumping. Another off the radar road, thoroughly recommended.
