Itineraries for road bikes from Le Bourg d’Oisans
All cycling itineraries leave from Bourg d’Oisans, the main borough in Oisans, whose long even stretches allow you to train your legs before you reach the more mountainous parts.
In addition, its geographical location in the heart of Oisans makes it an ideal starting pointto reach the mythical passes that delimit the Oisans region such as the Glandon and Croix de Fer passes, the Galibier pass, the Lautaret pass and the Ornon pass. But Bourg d’Oisans is above all THE starting point for the 21 bends of the ascent of the Alpe d’Huez.
Our indications for the length of each tour are for an average cyclist riding at approximately 28 km/h on flat roads and at 11 km/h uphill. These indications are, of course, subject to wind and road conditions, tiredness or even a meal with a little too much red wine … so times may vary !
