If the truth be known I owe a lot to the rockstar ascent that is Alpe d’Huez, along with its equally impressive neighbours the Glandon and Galibier. Back in 2003 it was the lure of these legendary peaks that gave me my first real taste of the mountains as I nervously lined up for La Marmotte not really knowing what I was getting myself into. I remember rolling into Bourg d’Oisans and feeling my stomach somersaulting with fearful excitement at the gargantuan size of the mountains surrounding me. You could feel the energy they possessed, like the walls of a Roman amphitheatre staring down at a gladiator about to go into combat. I’ll never forget that moment, eventually carving my way up the 21 bends to the summit of Alpe d’Huez. We’ve come a long way since then but this is, and always will b...
Probably the best known climb in the world. Also known as the Hollywood climb. You will be riding from the starting point to the finishline of the Tour de France route. With the sun baking, the 21 immortal hairpins are not an easy task for anyone. But the satisfaction of getting to the finish line is amazing. You will be joined by other cycling enthusiasts. Some will be faster, others slower. You can adjust the speed in the lower right side of the screen.

Information on Alpe d'Huez, the iconic Alpine climb that has regularly shaped the outcome of the Tour de France | Subscribe to Cycling Weekly here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CyclingWeekly1?sub_confirmation=1 The word ‘iconic’ is often over-worked in cycling, but its application to the wiggling climb up Alpe d’Huez is entirely justified, with this fearsome climb set to make its 30th Tour de France appearance in the 2018 edition. The 13.8-kilometres of tarmac slithers its way from Bourg d’Oisans to the ski resort of Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps, navigating 21 hairpin bends along the way. From the air, the road is instantly recognisable – as is its relentless turns and gradient when you are travelling up it or watching a race unfold on its slopes. Although Alpe d’Huez is a regular fix...

My name is Ralf and I am addicted to bicycle touring :) On my fully loaded touring bicycle I travelled 2.747km from Riesa, Germany to Nice in France crossing the 10 highest passes of the Alps accumulating over 45.000m of altitude. I cycled in July and August when the passes were open and free from snow. The nights I spent mostly in my tent, sometimes I took cheap accomodations when I needed to rest or when I was in a city. I love bicycle touring and more videos like this will follow. Stay tuned. GO OUT AND CYCLE !!! If you have questions, don't hesitate to write me, I'll answer. I hope...
