Enter now

Enter as an individual and join hundreds of riders from across the globe to live the cycling adventure of a lifetime. As the event is timed and ranked you will be part of the solo classifications.

Places will be reserved on a first come first served basis, with confirmation upon completion of the entry form and receipt of your payment via our online credit card payments system.

Sign up as a Duo (team of two cyclists).

Riders registering as a Duo will not be included in the individual standings; Duo teams will be ranked in a separate classification (Male Duo, Female Duo, Mixed Duo). The Duo rankings will be established based on the time of the second member of each Duo team to cross the finish line every day.

If entering as a Duo, you do not need to sign up at the same time, simply ensure that both riders enter the same team name in their registration form.

Accommodation

Trying to decide whether to buy one of our accommodations packages? We work hard to create the perfect package at the best possible price to ensure you only have to concentrate on your Haute Route ride. The hotel we chose in San Francisco is close to the start/finish line and next to our other activities like the pre-event check in, daily briefings and post-ride complementary massage.

Save Time and Hassle: Spend the weekend in a great hotel, just steps away from all the included Haute Route amenities and services. Skip the hassle, time, and travel costs of staying off-site!

Immerse Yourself in Cycling: Hanging out and swapping stories about life and the day’s stage is part of the unique team hotel culture of pro cycling. Experience that camaraderie with fellow Haute Route riders by staying with us in one of the Official Riders’ Hotel.

Great Rooms, Guaranteed: In the coolest cycling destinations, great hotel rooms are hard to find, so we found them and booked them for you far in advance! Even when every hotel in the area is full, Haute Route has you covered.

The Premium Accommodation Package includes a hotel which is designated as the Official Host Hotel for the event. This Package includes:

  • Three nights (from 26/09 up to 28/09) at the Official Host Hotel at a special Haute Route rate
  • Full buffet breakfast each day before the stage
  • The Host Hotel is either the location for or very close to the location of the amenities included in your entry fee: check-in for the event on the Thursday afternoon, pre-event kickoff reception, lunch after every stage, daily safety briefings and awards presentations, prime location close to the start/finish line each day, massage after stages 1 and 2, bike expo, mechanical support.
