L'Alpe-d'Huez travelogue picture
La Marmotte is perhaps the most prestigious Cyclingrace for amateurs. It's held every year on the first saterday of July with start in Bourg d'Oisans and finish on top of L'Alpe d'Huez. The race is 175 K's long and to complete the race you have to overcome 4 Alpine mountain passes. You're not alone in this event. Some 5000 cyclists accompany you...

Favourite spots:

Plan Lachat - big turn 8 K's before the summit of the Galibier. The summit of the Galibier.

What's really great:
This race is specially good when you are performing well. If your legs are gone then to whole thing becomes a nightmare...

Sights:
The glaciers of Pic Blanc and la Meije.

Accommodations:
There are lot's of campings in the area. If you want a good hotel check out Oberland in Bourg d'Oisans.
