Relatively easy alpine climb to start our week. Col de Petit St Bernard is long but at 5% over 25km it’s a beautiful and steady ride to the Italian border. Café in Italy is a necessity before we ride back to Bourg St Maurice. If you want to do more there is an option to take on the fearsome Colle San Carlo.
The Tour finishes in Megeve and our day will take us to the final climb where we will ride to the finish in Megeve before the stage finish. Before this we will ride through the stunning Aravis mountains.
The Tour starts in Albertville and finishes on the Col de Granon. Our ride today takes in the legendary Col de Galibier. Starting in St Michel de Maurienne we immediately climb the Col de Telegraph (12km @ 7%) then after a brief downhill to Valloire on to the Galibier. (16km at 7%) Topping out 2600m it’s the highest part of this year’s tour. Tonight we stay in les2alpes.
Alpe d’Huez! It needs no introduction. Starting from the hotel we ride to the valley floor and have 10km wark up before tacking the Alpe! This is quite an experience with the road inundated with camper vans and cycling fans. Having summited it’s time to find a good spot to watch the race and savour the atmosphere.
Riding out from the chalet the plan today is to tackle one of the Tour’s newest climbs – where the race finished in 2020. The Col de Loze is virtually on our doorstep and the circuit from the chalet is only around 40km but involves some very tough inclines to the summit at 2300m. You can choose how much climbing you do today dependent on how feel.
There are a few options today. You can tackle the Col de Madeleine or take in some of the local roads around Courchevel. The choice is yours and we will have various possibilities. You could even have a rest day around the chalet and enjoy the numerous other activities which take place here in the summer.
