Cycling the Alps
The Tour de France is often in our "backyard". The mountain stages are great to watch. On the Alpe d'Huez thousands of fans gather to encourage the cyclists.
No wonder the summer attracts many amateur cyclists, culminating in the performance race la Marmotte.
"La Marmotte" start each year at the foot of the Alp d'Huez in the village of Bourg d'Oisans.
This week in June we have a customized program for our guests who participate in La Marmotte. This implies that in the afternoon extra pasta meals will be served and the night before the Marmotte we'll eat earlier so that participants can fully enjoy their sleep. On the day of the race, breakfast can be served at any time.
Besides these two major events, it's always enjoyable to cycling in the Alps. In Our Chambre d'Hôtes we have information booklets and we can give advise for a route.
From our chalet "Les 2 M" you're close to world famous cols as the Alpe d'Huez, Galibier, Croix de Fer and Lautaret.
For cyclists our chalet has a barn to park bikes safely. You can also clean the bikes at ease there and do some maintenance. In the nearby village of Bourg d'Oisans there are several bike shops who sell supplies.
