Two ways to ride the Gran Fondo Col de la Loze for free

Life is expensive enough as it is! This year, however, there are two ways to ride the Gran Fondo Col de la Loze absolutely free. And you can also watch one of the biggest sports races in the world free or charge: the Tour de France. Count your winnings.

What is the Gran Fondo Col de la Loze?

  • a relatively young gran fondo from Brides-les-Bains.
  • Distances 117km/4377m+, 53km/2424m+, 46km/2141m+, 30km/741m+.
  • With the Col de la Loze. Twice in the longest course!
  • The Col de la Loze is the toughest climb in France, you must have done it.
  • The relatively short distance is somewhat misleading, this gran fondo is a very tough challenge!
  • Date: July 16, 2023.
  • More info at CycloWorld.
  • Official website.

Special this year: the Tour de France stops by

Just three days after the gran fondo (on Wednesday, July 19), the Tour de France will pass by for stage 17, in which the riders will, of course, also contest the Col de la Loze. This is the highest point of the 2023 Tour. Just below the summit in Courchevel is the finish.

The perfect opportunity to combine riding a gran fondo with watching the Tour. But it gets even better, as another day later (on Thursday, July 20) there will also be the stage start of stage 18 from nearby Moûtiers.
