Description

Welcome to our exciting French Alps cycle tour. This week-long trip explores some of France’s most amazing scenery and you will experience some of the Tour de France’s most famous climbs.

You’ll cover approximately 250 miles over 6 days, averaging around 42 miles a day. However this trip isn’t about mileage but about climbing some truly majestic mountains. Each day you will have plenty of time to relax and explore because you’ll finish cycling around early afternoon.

Our base is Bourg d’Oisans, located in a natural setting among the mountains. It’s often considered to be the capital of French cycling. There are plenty of bars and restaurants set along the main streets and an abundance of patisseries, grocery and gift shops.

Our French Alps tour runs from Saturday to Saturday with 6 days cycling. Including classic climbs of the Cols de Sarenne, d’Ornon, Croix de Fer, Lautaret, Galibier and Alpe d’Huez. You depart from Bourg d’Oisans each day; the long valley road allows you to stretch your legs before you reach the ascents.

This tour is aimed at cyclists who like a challenge but, as the mileages aren’t too long, the climbs are achievable for most regular cyclists. However hill training and  multi-day cycling experience beforehand is essential. You’re supported by our team daily, with the support van available for assistance when needed.

Your effort will be well rewarded with many fantastic vistas over the mountains of the French Alps. Your main aims of each day are to have a great time and gain a great sense of achievement reaching the tops of these famous climbs.
