The Col de Parquetout is a 7km climb that can be reached after the Col d'Ornon from Bourg d'Oisans. It consists of a narrow tree lined road with gradients up to 18% and is used in the Marco Pantani Cycling Sportive.

Our guests then either descend the same way or continue around the mountain towards La Mure before either turning left to ride the rest of the Marco Pantani Cycling Sportive or right to head back over Col d'Ornon and our base in Bourg d'Oisans.
