Race Across Rhone Alpes Auvergne highlights a selection of the best cycling "spots" in the Rhone Alpes region.
Composed of 8 million inhabitants, 12 departments and benefiting from a geographical situation that favours sports, the region is distinguished by its demographic dynamism.
The base camp used as a place of departure and arrival is located in a place that is now well known to cyclists, namely BASECAMP - Talloires.
Located on the eastern shore of Lake Annecy, this place is also a crossing point for the Across America Race. Talloires, is known for its charm and softness of life.
Basecamp is also very involved in local sports as it organises events including the Resistance in September.
The route will take us through this beautiful department and these alpine massifs, which will certainly offer you breathtaking panoramas attracting cyclists from all over the world.
The 300 Km format is for those who wish to test themselves over this distance, work on their land or carry out a personal challenge.
On this format, you will have the chance to explore the most beautiful massifs and some mythical passes. It is also a countdown event to the "Bicycle Insurance Challenge" and a good warm-up for participants and support teams who plan to do a 500 K at a future Challenge.
The 300 and 500 Kilometre Formats are both moderately difficult - ideal for all athletes and intermediate ultra distance participants.
- There is no registration for the day of the event.
- No refund of registration fees.
- Events will take place regardless of the weather.
This event counts for the "Bike Insurance" challenge
The Auvergne Rhone Alpes region enjoys a continental climate, with a mild September.
The weather conditions in September in this region are quite and temperatures oscillate between 10 and 20°C but the mornings can be cool.
It is sometimes possible that a rainy day slips in here and there. So be prepared to deal with a wide variety of conditions.
We strongly recommend that you bring warm equipment for the descent and it is always a good idea to prepare for cooler weather and/or rain.
The 500 km format, which is just as difficult, is reserved for long-distance enthusiasts who want to refine their preparation but also for those who want to exceed their limits and test themselves over a long distance.
The route will largely be common with the 300 KM and you will have an additional loop to enjoy a little more of this green nature.
It is also an excellent warm-up for runners and crews who plan to do RACE ACROSS FRANCE in the following year.
