Long Description:
FR Ce panneau est assez typique. Il est destiné aux cyclistes et leur communique la distance à parcourir pour atteindre une destination "officielle", ici, la destination est le sommet de la montagne de Lure, leur altitude et la pente (4%).
Le problème c'est qu'ici, la bonne altitude est de 1692 m, pas de 1697 m. L'écart est de 5 m.
A plusieurs endroits, j'ai noté des différences alors qu'à d'autres l'information donnée était la bonne. Je sais que mon GPS est correct car au départ de cet itinéraire cycliste, un autre panneau confirme l'altitude de mon appareil.

The problem is that here, the right altitude is 1692 m, not 1697 m. The gap is 5 m.
In several places, I noticed differences while in others the information given was the right one. I know that my GPS is correct because at the beginning of this cycling route, another panel confirms the altitude of my device.
