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 and support for riders, ensuring that you can enjoy this event to the full in the knowledge that all your logistics are taken care of. For 2021 we are very excited at the prospect of supporting and riding Haute Route Pyrenees and Haute Route Dolomites too.

The 2021 edition of Haute Route Alps will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the event's inauguration in 2011. It will be the biggest and toughest edition yet with 800km spread over 7 stages and including 22500m of climbing. The event 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 2021 route is incredible! It includes including classics like the Iseran, Galibier and Bonette, a Stage 4 time trial up the iconic Alpe d'Huez and a Stage 3 queen stage that will be the biggest stage in Haute Route history. Full details of each stage can be found here

As an official Haute Route Tour Operator we are able to offer a full package that includes entry to the event.  For those of you who have already entered the event you can also take advantage of our accommodation support package. Your entry to the event includes many services provided by the organisation, full details here. 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 2021 we will also be providing accommodation, support and entries for Haute Route Pyrenees from July 6-10 and Haute Route Dolomites from Aug 31 - Sep 4. Why not double up and head to the Dolomites straight after the Alps! Several of our riders decided to double up in 2019 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.
