Alpine Cols of the Tour de France

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

It pretty much all was, but the ascents of the Col d'Izoard and Col de la Crox de Fer were exceptional.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader was very friendly and helpful, as well as being knowledgeable about the local area and all things bike-related.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The weather may suddenly take a turn for the worse, so bring winter gear as back-up. We needed it on one day, when temperatures plummeted to 7 deg.C and snow fell on the Galibier.
