Alpine Classic Cols

8 Days

This road cycling itinerary has been carefully crafted so you can cycle the most scenic and challenging cols and stage endings that the Savoie Alps has to offer. Our tantalising circular route takes in all the Tour de France climbs: Cormet de Roseland, l’Iseran, Telegraphie, Col du Galibier, Alpe D’Huez, Croix-de-Fer and la Madeleine. On our Classic Route you start off as gently as the Alps allow, gradually cranking up the daily altitude gain from 1200 to 2100m. Each day there are ‘optional extras’ increasing the possible daily ascent to over 2600m, making this holiday also suitable for those looking to really push themselves and take on our Classic Cols Challenge. It is ideal for mixed ability groups or couples.

This week is real escape and riding on the quiet roads through the dramatic mountain scenery of the Alps with its far reaching views is a joy, not to mention the sense of achievement as you summit these climbs.
