Cycling events in the Alps

There are many cycling events and tours during the summer months in both Morzine and Alpe d’Huez. Some you can take part in; some it's best to spectate and observe how the pro’s do it!

Morzine events

How about the Morzine Sportive event in June? This event attracts a top field with many mountain specialists racing it out at the front for podium honours over 160km. Alternatively you can opt for the 103km route which has total climbing of 2,520m and includes stunning cols and gorges. After both races, everybody gets together for the traditional pasta party and prize presentation, to round off the day with a celebration.

The Pass'Portes du Soleil Mountain Biking Event is a weekend in June. This mountain biking weekend sees cyclists of all abilities tackling the VTT routes of the Portes du Soleil. There are 3 designated categories to enter: 80km, 50km and 30km as well as a special 'Rando Kids' track.

If leathers, fumes and interesting facial hair are your thing then you’ll be in your element in July as the biannual (odd years) Harley-Davidson Festival descends in Morzine. Don't miss the opportunity to drool over these beautiful machines as approximately 3000 bikes arrive for the weekend.

Alpe D'Huez events

Alpe d'Huez played host to the 12th Stage of the Tour de France on 19 July 2018. Although it won't be passing through this year there are plenty of other cycling events to keep you entertained and/or exhausted. The challenge of the 21 bends is harnessed in the La Marmotte race, the Trophy Oisans and the annual triathalon. You can also give it a go at your own pace on any given day in the summer.
