Details

Conquer many of the most famous Alpine cols in this unforgettable cycling experience that takes you from Thonon Les Bains on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland through the French Alps, skirting the border of Italy on your way to Nice on the beautiful Mediterranean.

The Raid Alpine as the route from Geneva to Nice is known, is one of the most challenging and rewarding Raids, allowing you to experience the true contrasts and beauty of the Alps, from relaxing Alpine meadows to the extreme, rocky landscapes surrounding some of the most iconic climbs from the Tour de France. No other Raid takes in as many hors-category climbs as this one; cols include Col de la Colombiere, Col de l’Iseran, Col du Galibier, l’Alpe d’Huez, Col de l’Izoard passing the famous Fausto Coppi & Louison Bobet memorial on the Casse Desert and of course, the highest road pass in Europe, the testing Col de la Bonette, with a final climb up the Col d’Èze to finish.
