The French Alps hold a special place in the hearts of most cyclists and for years our alpine tours have been amongst our most popular French road cycling holidays. This adventure combines a whole host of old favourites, including a pairing of two of the most iconic climbs in the sport of road cycling, along with a number of new challenges which really showcase the best the southern Alps have to offer.
 
From Marseille we transfer to Bedoin, the most famous of the three Ventoux gateway villages. Bedoin is a bustling little town nestling in the shadows of the legendary mountain and is the access point to the 'classic' and most challenging route up Mont Ventoux. After first ascending this majestic mountain we make our way through typical Provençal terrain via numerous villages and towns to the start of the southern Alps. Here the landscape becomes much more dramatic and challenging with steep sided valley walls, plunging waterfalls and far reaching views of peaks rising to nearly 4,000m.
 
The remainder of the tour is crammed with great climbs including Vars, Glandon, Izoard, and the Galibier. Of course, no alpine cycle tour would be complete without a pilgrimage to the great Alpe d’Huez; 21 numbered hairpins, 14km and an average gradient of 8.3%, it really is a must for those who love to climb and marks a very fitting end to our journey around the legendary cols of Le Tour. 
 
Undoubtedly we’ll be working up a healthy appetite during our rides and as always the Skedaddle team will be providing plenty of appetising food to keep you going throughout each day.
