Starting in Bourg Saint Maurice - The Cycloclimbing Challenges

Bourg St Maurice lies at the foot of no fewer than three world-famous passes, making it a honeypot for cycloclimbers in the Tarentaise.

Between the Col de l’Iseran, Col de Petit Saint Bernard and Cormet de Roselend, there is no shortage of challenging ways for cycloclimbers to enjoy the beautiful countryside of the upper valley. Other great climbs on which to savour the peace and quiet of the high mountains include Lac du Saut and the hamlet of Savonne. And, of course, the climbs to Les Arcs 2000 and Tignes are not to be missed.
