The Oisans Col Series is an annual event at that closes roads to cars to allow cyclists to ride cols including Alpe d'Huez on traffic-free roads. Here is the 2019 info programme.
The 2019 Oisans Col Series runs each Tuesday morning of July and August, when a different col will be closed to motor traffic for up to three hours to give cyclists the mountain to themselves.
It's a joyous and well-organised local affair, with riders completing the ascents greeted by friendly faces and refreshments. This year a new route has been introduced up to the Oz en Oisans station which takes place on 16 July.
