Cyclist Magazine Issue 115
Alpe d’Huez: 21 bends, Dutch corner, most used climb in the Tour de France. So why not travel to the Rhône Alpes and completely ignore it?
With a little local knowledge we’ve found a Big Ride route that deliberately circumvents Huez to make for a higher, longer, harder and all-round more beautiful ride. And the best bit? Huez draws the crowds leaving our route only for you.
Of course we might have to wait a while before we can travel to France, so in the meantime Cyclist issue 115 brings you Chris Boardman to talk Secret Squirrels and the future of city transport; Richard Moore to talk Tour de France hopefuls; and Israel Start-Up Nations’s sporting director, Cherie Pridham, to give us a unique perspective from inside the pro peloton. And then bikes. Because we can all still ride, so here we have four corkers from British makers Vekta and Sven Cycles; German stalwarts Cube; and then a real humdinger from Moots that will make you fall in love with titanium all over again.
