Cycling Ascents

Cycling Ascents runs cycling holidays at the foot of Alpe d'Huez, with accommodation based in Bourg D’Oisans, a market town in the heart of the French Alps

We provide guided rides, route advice or just cyclist specific accommodation for those who prefer to get out and explore on their own.

Our base just 2 km from the centre of Bourg D’Oisans is just a 5 minute ride from the foot of Alpe d’Huez, the legendary Tour de France climb. Also within riding distance are the Col du Galibier, Col Du Glandon & Col de la Croix de Fer as well as many other rides to keep even a serious road cyclist busy for a week or more. Local sportive events include La Marmotte, Marco Pantani Memorial, La Vaujany, and the Alpe D’Huez Triathlon. We invite you to come and let us guide you through the experience of riding the high alpine passes and witness the incredible scenery that has become an integral part of the spectacle of the Tour de France.
