The eighth edition of the Haute Route Alps – the original event of the European Haute Route multi-day cyclosportive series – returns to its North to South route in 2018.

With another classic week of fully timed and ranked cycling from Nice to Geneva, experience the best blend so far of hard days on the bike, classic Alpine climbs and event villages set in some of France’s most famous ski resorts.

Whether you are a hardened campaigner or looking for your first taste of the majesty of one of Europe’s greatest cycling playgrounds, take on a spectacular course in the heart of the French Alps. With 800km and 20,000 metres of climbing, the eighth edition of the Haute Route Alps will feature some of the world’s most renowned cycling cols and some new ascents.

In keeping with the Haute Route’s unique proposition, you will benefit from the Haute Route’s usual professional level of rider support on each of the seven timed and ranked stages. This includes fully authorised stages, mechanical and safety support on the road, massages, rider’s meal, briefing and full logistical support meaning that the focus is always on the riding.

This year the Haute Route Alps returns to its original route leading you from the heart of the Alps all the way down to the Mediterranean Sea.

This region is home to some of the biggest and most popular ski resorts in Europe, and is definitely worth a visit in the summer and the winter.
