On the final day of our autumn tour we took in the local traverses that sit either side of Alpe d’Huez and also off bend 5 of Les Deux Alpes. These are little known climbs in the area (and are included at the end of the Marco Pantani Memorial Cycling Sportive) but offer spectacular riding on super quiet roads over lookin large parts of the Oisans valleys and Bourg d’Oisans.
We run our Autumn Tour of the Oisans over the first week of October each year. We provide the tour at a discounted price because a lot of the cafes and restaurants close down in October. The weather is still in the low 20′s and all the major cols are still open. For the second week of October we run our Alpe d’Huez and Mont Ventoux holiday that also includes an evening meal in the price of your stay.
