Between balcony roads with magnificent panoramic views over the valleys, overhanging roads, hairpin bends, village crossings, ascents to mountain passes or steep climbs up to eagle’s-nest villages, Oisans’ roads have some fine cycling adventures in store for you!
Oisans is also the setting for some major cycling events. The Tour de France and Oisans enjoy close ties. We have lost count of the number of finishing lines at Alpe d’Huez or the starts from Bourg d’Oisans, which have contributed to the worldwide renown of this race. The Oisans Trophy cycle races attract cyclists from all over the world who flock to the area to take part in the famous ‘Marmotte’ and ‘Vaujany’ events, which are the best-known races in the Alps. Our Dutch friends have even created a charity event involving the climb up to Alpe d’Huez. Known as the ‘Alpe d’Huzes’. This event beats its own record each year for the amount of money raised for the fight against cancer.
