Exodus tour de France colsTake on the Tour de France's most famous Alpine passes. This guided ride covers off both the Italian and French stars of the Tour, including Col de la Bonnette, the highest col in Europe, before heading on to Vars, Izoard, Galibier and Croix de Fer, and culminating in the 21 switchbacks of Alpe d'Huez. 100% vehicle support for 6 days of riding, with an average daily distance of 68km. Climbs are long and steady (average gradient: 7.5%) and descents include some steep sections with no guard rails. This isn't a race, though, and you can go at your own pace. Price includes 7 nights' B&B in 2-star hotels.
