For the 10th consecutive year, Oisans Col Series will be closing the road up to the Col d'Ornon to traffic! With no fixed start time, cyclists can gather together to enjoy this magnificent road without any exhaust fumes!
Starting from La Paute (2km before Bourg d'Oisans), cyclists will be able to ride up to the Col d'Ornon (1371m) from 9 to 11 am. A lovely outing with no exhaust fumes! On arrival at the Col d'Ornon, refreshments will be provided for cyclists to keep their strength up before setting off again (for the bravest, anyway) for the Matheysin plateau (via La Morte or Laffrey).
Distance: 11 km
Height gain: 733 m
Average time: 1h30
