    The Grenoble Cycling Pages have been updated with new photos from the Col de
    la Croix de Fer and Col du Galiber. The high Alpine passes have just been
    opened, making some spectacular cycling after the snow ploughs have cut
    through deep snow. Also included are photos from the Col du Glandon and Col
    de la Madeleine, both still closed.

    If you are planning to visit the French Alps this summer to see the Tour de
    France or want more information on the climbs that the race has made famous,
    then visit the Grenoble Cycling Pages.

    This year the Tour de France will visit the nearby resorts of Villard de
    Lans and Alpe d'Huez. The riders will also race over the Col du Glandon and
    Col de la Madeleine on the stage to Grand Bornand. At the start of June,
    the Tour de France warm-up race, the Dauphine Libere will start in the
    northern Alps in Megeve, and end a week later in Grenoble with two stage
    finishes in the city.

    The Grenoble Cycling Pages have been created to promote cycling in the
    French Alps. The pages contain information and photos on the principal
    mountain passes in the French Alps as well as information on areas around
    Grenoble; the Chartreuse, Vercors and Alps including the Alpe d'Huez and Col
    du Galibier. There are also pages dedicated to Mont Ventoux, and the towns
    of Briancon, Bourg St Maurice, Barcelonnette and La Clusaz and the climbs
    around the towns.

    The site also covers the professional races that pass through the Alps
    including the Tour de France and the Dauphine Libere, as well as information
    on the events in the Alps, a rides diary and suggested cycling routes.

    If you are planning a trip to France or want to find out more about the
    area, visit the Grenoble Cycling Pages.
