Tour Overview

Haute Route Alps

The Haute Route Alps is a classic 7 stage race over the most iconic climbs in the region. The race starts in stylish Megeve and heads down to Nice over 7 mountainous stages. The average day is around 130km with 2500-3500m of climbing with 2-4 big climbs per day. In the middle is a time trial (typically up a classic climb) which combines as a rest day in the afternoon.
Join our small, social team of like minded riders. You will be expertly supported by our team of mechanics who will keep your bikes in perfect order and our DS who will run through route briefs each evening with tips for the stage. We will have private feed stops with a bag drop service on each stage and we stay close to the race village each evening. We have been proud partners of the Haute Route for many years and know exactly what you need to ride the Haute Route at your best.
