Tour de France 2018, Alpe d Huez

So, the not so well kept rumours, were true and the Tour visits Alpe d Huez for a mountain top finish again in 2018, hurrah. After setting out from Bourg-Saint-Maurice a route over the mountains and 175 km brings the riders to the finish on Alpe d Huez.

But it’s not over then, the start in Bourg d Oisans on the 20 July means two days of the race, as the riders head off from the village towards Valance.

19 juillet : 12e étape Bourg-Saint-Maurice – Alpe d’Huez, 175 km
20 juillet : 13e étape Bourg-d’Oisans – Valence, 169 km

Just in case you still need persuading, have a look at some of this summer’s guest reviews :

Garth, August 2017

Thank you very much for a wonderful week′s cycling holiday. I had a wonderful time with a great bunch of people. Before the tour started I was a bit apprehensive about my ability to keep up with the group, but I needn′t have worried. I can′t praise your guide enough.  He was supportive, friendly, insightful and was always around checking on us and helping (and) gave me the confidence to try and ride the Col du Telegraphe and Col du Galibier in the same day, which is something that I was extremely grateful for. Amy′s breakfasts were great as was her friendly greeting and smile first thing in a morning.  My accommodation in both Bourg and in Sault was great! To finish, this was our third holiday in Bourg d′Oisans…and definitely the most enjoyable. The MT21B′s experience was very impressive.

Jonathan, August 2017

Our group of 10 US and Aussies had an incredible trip with MT21B climbing the classic TDF cols – an itinerary that covers so much in a week. Everyday was a highlight and made easy by their 5 star guide. Aside from all the classic climbs, we really enjoyed the Chateuaneuf du Pape lunch day and the Ventoux descent into Sault and the Nesque Gorge. No one wanted to come home.

Michael, August 2017

Everything went great and having Pierre as our guide for the supported rides was brilliant. He did an outstanding job. We had perfect weather and would highly recommend any cyclist to put this on their list of must do’s. 

Adrian, June 2017

I would like to thank all the team for making the weeks stay so enjoyable. From the accommodation and breakfast to the bike rental to the guided tours everything was organised brilliantly. I really appreciate all the hard work in making sure the week was so successful for all members of the tour.

Alpe d’Huez – First Custom Tour of the year

Last weekend (13th may 2017) we had our first custom tour in for a long weekend . Despite the heavy rain on arrival the sun came out for the next few days while the guys tackled La Berarde and Alpe d’Huez. With a real mix of abilities from walkers to fast guys it was a real challenge keeping the group together. All 12 guys also hired PROMPT road bikes for the weekend
