L'Alpe d'Huez 2 - to TDF finish line. Hill Climb

Enlarge Image

As the Town of Alpe d' Huez comes into view about 2 km's away, there is a junction where it's possible to turn right & climb into the town using a set of hairpins to the right of the town . DON'T go right , continue straight on & approach the town using the hairpins to the left of the town as in the google map . When in the town the TDF route through is marked on roadside posts. NB - there's an anomaly with the google map distance , the real distance is definatly exactly 14km's , not 13.5km's as shown by google map.

Distance: 13.52km | 8.40mi

Elevation Profile



Turn off the main road at the roundabout ( formerly a T intersection ) & continue on the flat road towards the 'Alp' for 500meters , you will come to the 'Camping Cascade' on your right after 500 meters & at the same time pass over a river bridge - start the stopwatch from there ... the road turns sharp left & steeply upwards just after that point !

Start Point: Camping Cascade / river bridge right at the foot of the climb., rolling

End point: On the Avenue Rif nel 300 meters after left turn at last roundabout ...
