French Alps Cycle Challenge 2017


Cyclists of all abilities are invited to join The French Alps Cycle Challenge 2017 in order to raise money for Blackburn Youth Zone and Rosemere Cancer Foundation. From 1st – 7th September 2017, 40 cyclists will cycle through 5 Cols of the Alps to Grenoble, then onward to the infamous Alpe d’Huez and after a further 7 Cols, reach the Giant of Provence Mont Ventoux, before the most stunning cycle through Gorges De La Nesque.
