La Marmotte - Saturday, July 4, 2015
Marmotte cyclo sportive profile

The celebrated "La Marmotte" provides an opportunity to ride the terrain of the pros, complete a grueling circuit, and climb such mythic mountain passes as the Col du Glandon (1,924 m or 5,800 ft.), the Col du Galibier (2,642 m or 7,925 ft.), and Alpe d'Huez (1,880 m or 5,640 ft.).

This popular cyclo sportive race, which has been taking place for over 30 years, is a perfect way to experience the thrill of the Tour de France, take part in a mass-timed cycling event, and compete against the clock, yourself, or others.

Conveniently, the ride takes place during the same period as the Tour de France, thereby allowing cyclists the exciting opportunity of combining an exceptional ride with viewing the most renowned cycling event in the world. All in all, this is an event that should not be missed!

Please also be sure to check out the other cyclosportive for which we offer packages, the Etape du Tour!

  Conveniently, the ride takes place during the same period as the Tour de France, thereby allowing cyclists the exciting opportunity of combining an exceptional ride with viewing the most renowned cycling event in the world. All in all, it is an event not to be missed and is a great alternative to participating in the Etape du Tour, which sells out fast.

In 2015, Cyclomundo also offers another Gran Fondo, the Etape du Tour.
