BRA 2019 - Brevet de Randonneur des Alpes

From July 20th to 21st, 2019

Bourg d’Oisans

A major change is scheduled this year in that Bourg d’Oisans will be the base camp for the different events.

The main BRA event is 180 km long, with a total height gain of 4,300 m, taking in the Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Glandon, the 18 switchbacks of Montvernier, the Col du Télégraphe, Col du Galibier and Col du Lautaret.

Organized every two years by Cyclotouristes Grenoblois (CTG), under the aegis of the French Cyclotouring Federation, the BRA attracts over 1,500 cyclists of all ages and all levels in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Routes

Cyclists have a choice of three events:

  • The BRA (Brevet de Randonneur des Alpes) in a single day.

  • The BAC (Brevet Alpin de Cyclotourisme) that follows the same route as the BRA, but over two days.

  • For this 50th edition, the “Découverte de l’Oisans, à la rencontre du BRA” is a shorter and more gentle version of the BRA.
