La Marmotte - Sunday, July 8, 2018
Marmotte cyclo sportive profile
Climbing Alpe d'Huez

The celebrated "La Marmotte" provides an opportunity to ride the terrain of the pros, complete a grueling circuit, and climb such mythic mountain passes as the Col du Glandon (1,924 m or 5,800 ft.), the Col du Galibier (2,642 m or 7,925 ft.), and Alpe d'Huez (1,880 m or 5,640 ft.).

This popular cyclo sportive race, which has been taking place for over 30 years, is a perfect way to experience the thrill of the Tour de France, take part in a mass-timed cycling event, and compete against the clock, yourself, or others.

Conveniently, the ride takes place during the same period as the Tour de France, thereby allowing cyclists the exciting opportunity of combining an exceptional ride with viewing the most renowned cycling event in the world. All in all, this is an event that should not be missed!


To accommodate as many people as possible with participation in the Marmotte, we offer 3 options:
