Haute Route: Two months until 'ultimate' sportive

haute route

Could you climb Everest twice on a bike? That's pretty much what participants in this year's Haute Route cyclo-sportive will undertake when they ride from Geneva to Nice over 730km and 17,000 metres of Alpine climbs from August 21-27.

Unsurprisingly, Haute Route is being billed at the 'ultimate cyclo-sportive', and takes in 15 mountain climbs in this inaugural edition of the event including the Galibier, Cime de la Bonette, Colombière, Madeleine and Izoard.
