As the summer comes around so does the most famous race in cycling, Le Tour de France. Being in the Alps during the summer when the Tour de France is on is truly special. With the roads all being closed off and lined with thousands of people waiting hours to see the peloton zoom past at speeds of around 60 kph, blink and you’ll miss it. A better way to see more of the race is to go and spectate from the side of the road up on the cols themselves. With the riders going a fair bit slower as the gradient increases, their legs tire giving fans the opportunity to run alongside the riders. In this blog I will share with you my top 5 cols in the Alps.
