Tour de France

Each year the Tour de France comes close to or through Bourg d'Oisans either when it climbs Alpe d'Huez or one of the other nearby climbs.
The Tour de France is an annual multiple stage bicycle race primarily held in France.

The race has been held annually since its first edition in 1903 except for when it was stopped for the two World Wars. Along with the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España, the Tour makes up cycling's prestigious, three-week-long Grand Tours.

While the route changes each year, the format of the race stays the same with the appearance of at least two time trials, the passage through the mountain chains of the Pyrenees and the Alps, and the finish on the Champs-Élysées.

There is more to the Tour de France than Alpe d'Huez !

The Tour de France is not climbing Alpe d'Huez in 2014. It is however passing through Bourg d'Oisans on Saturday 19th July from its start in Grenoble, it then climbs out local Col du Lautaret and finishes in Risoul just over the other side of the Col d'Izoard.

In addition the stage on Friday 18th July will finish on the Chamrousse climb just outside Grenoble. This is easily reachable by bicycle from Bourg d'Oisans being about 40 km away.
