The access road to the famous ski resort of l'Alpe d'Huez. There are some other roads out of the resort, but only really suitable for lovers of gravel and stones.
The main road up, and the only one really of interest to road bikers leads from the south off the N91 near l'Bourg-d'Oisans. This is the road busses take up casino online in the winter, so it's well-kept, wide and has 21 hairpins - brilliant! When we did it, a lot of it had just been resurfaced, and in the heat the tarmac was still soft, even under the weight of our bikes. Which made coming down interesting.... It doesn't take too long, and definitely worth the detour if you're here. Have a drink at the top.

Editor review

This well worth a detour, especially when you add the
Balcony Route- D211b.
