Haute Route Alps

Alpine Cadence : Supported rides for cyclists in the Alps
Haute Route Alps 22nd - 28th August 2020                                  BOOK NOW

The Haute Route is, quite simply, the best amateur cycling event that we've come across. Haute Route Alps is a 7 day stage race with rankings/general classifications. An incredible event and one that gives the rider an unparalleled 'pro' experience. We will be providing a full package including accommodation, support and entry for riders, ensuring that you can enjoy this event to the full in the knowledge that all your logistics are taken care of. For 2020 we are very excited at the prospect of supporting and riding both of the Haute Route 7 day events in the Alps and Pyrenees.

Haute Route Alps will start on August 22nd in the beautiful Alpine town of Megève. 7 challenging days later will see the event culminate in Nice on the Cote d’Azur. The 2020 route is incredible! 800km with 20,000m of climbing, including classics like the Iseran, Galibier and Bonette. For the first time ever the event will culminate with an exciting time trial finale up the Col d'Eze out of Nice. Full details of the exact route are on the Haute Route website.

As an official Haute Route Tour Operator we are able to offer a full package that includes entry to the event.  Your entry to the event includes many services provided by the Haute Route organisation. Our accommodation and support package is carefully designed to make sure you get the best possible environment to ride and enjoy this big challenge.

For 2020 we will also be providing accommodation, support and entries for Haute Route Pyrenees from August 30th - September 5th. Why not do the double! Several of our riders decided to double up last year to create an incredible fortnight of challenge, and they all made it! .

Not sure what level of rider you need to be to complete the event?

Drop us a line to discuss this. We will only encourage you to join us if we are confident that your riding level is strong enough. That said, the 'cut off' times in the event are generous and it's an event that's very achievable for most keen road cyclists. We pride ourselves in the fact that all the riders who have joined us for Haute Route in previous editions have all completed the event comfortably within the time limits, a record we intend to continue. Don't forget that as part of our accommodation and support package we offer a free coaching service in the months leading up to the event. This ensures that you are as well prepared as possible for the challenge.
