Spectacular high alpine roads and bucket list climbs including Galibier, Glandon and Colle del Finestre! This trip straddles the French Alps and the Piemonte region in the northwest of Italy. Not only does it have some of the most impressive scenery of the Alps, it also is world famous for its regional food and wine. Highlights of this trip are the Colle del Finestre, famously used in the Giro d'Italia with its 5 miles of gravel as well as the Col du Galibuer and Col du Glandon of Tour de France fame.

We'll be staying overnight in historical towns along the way in small local inns. Trip dates: June 22-30, 2019 Daily distances are 40-70 miles with 4,000-9,000ft of vertical. Shorter and easier routes are offered on the toughest days. We have a rest day in the middle of our trip in the historical town of Susa.
