Day 2

On today’s agenda, a few iconic mountain passes immortalized on the Tour de France.  Whether you’ve heard of them or not, they will remain engraved into your memory.

375 thrilling kilometers of jaw dropping roads are beckoning.  6 top shelf roads, all in one day.

-Alpe d’Huez (1860m)

-Col du Glandon (1924m)

-Col de la Croix de Fer Iron Cross (2,067m)

-Telegraphe Pass (1,566m)

Day 3

If yesterday didn’t blow your mind, today will.  Scenery, curves, gorges, passes…Ride through the Vercors, home of French resistance fighters in WWII.

Balcony roads, tunnels, spectacular scenery…the Vercors hosted some of the Alpine events from the 1968 Winter Olympics.

The balcony roads in the Vercors are tight with little or no guardrail.  Look at the rock overhangs and the sheer drop-off (but not for too long).  Your pillion may get nervous in some sections.
