Cycling Ascents provides guided cycling holidays based at the foot of Alpe D'Huez, with our accommodation in Bourg D’Oisans. Bourg D’Oisans is the ideal base for cycling up Alpe D’Huez, being only two minutes ride from the bottom of the legendary Tour de France climb. Other Tour greats such as the Col Du Galibier, Col du Glandon and Col de la Croix de Fer are also within cycling distance.
Based in Bourg D’Oisans, we provide quality self-catered accommodation that is never more than a short walk from the town centre with it’s cafes, restaurants and bars. Secure bike storage is always available in the rental properties we use. Rental is on a ‘by apartment’ basis, rather than ‘by room’.
We invite you to come and let us guide you through the experience riding the high alpine passes and witness the incredible scenery that has become an integral part of the spectacle of the Tour de France.
To see some examples of the rides we do, and see pictures of the views that you will enjoy, see our Blog Page. You can also read some general ramblings about living and cycling in the French Alps too!
