French Alpes Tour: Alpes and Ventoux

Tour Description: Self-guided

On this tour you can learn how the pro riders suffer and take inspiration from the amazing beauty of these spectacular mountains. Go to the top of Alpe d’Huez, touch the monument to Henri Desgranges at the summit of the Galibier, climb Les Deux Alpes, Lautaret, and others! If you are an experienced and passionate rider, then come climb where legends have passed and been made!

At Ventoux, this mythical mountain has influenced many Tours de France over the years being famous for its steep ascent, its heat, its bald and exposed peak, and simply its legend. For those who are really strong, there is the "Club des Cingles", for which we will propose a service to achieve this status. Can you conquer the ‘Giant of Provence’?!

In the Alpes base ‘camp’ is the charming village of Le Freney-d’Oisans. This charming little mountain town is 50 miles (80 km) from Grenoble and 7 miles (12 km) from Bourg d'Oissans the attractive local capital of the Oisans mountain area. At Ventoux, base camp is a charming hotel in Bedoin at the foot of the Giant. On arrival you get a detailed briefing upon the cycling possibilities, the routes and organization of your cycling holiday.
