The Alpe d'Huez is another do not miss road in the French Alps, particularly if you are a bicycle racing fan at all, then it's practically hallowed ground. A lovely ride if you can avoid traffic. The best ride I had there was in June.
Alpinebiker mentioned two adjacent roads of note; The road to Villard Reclusas (sp?), and the Col de la Sarenne. I'll post video of both. Sarenne is a personal favorite as it is high, wild, and does not have much traffic. The surface is poor, but the rock lined culverts add to the fun!
