COL DE LA LOZE BY BRIDES LES BAINS
After a first edition last year the sportive Col de la Loze by Brides-les-Bains is back in 2021 with the Tour de France 2020 ultimate challenge: Col de la Loze – 2304m and an elevation of 1715m climbing on the Meribel side.ème If you feel strong enough to take the long route – 100 km with 3716m of elevation – you will explore the Parc de la Vanoise’s magnificent roads before confronting the main challenge: reaching the altitude of 2304m at the top of the Col de la Loze after 22,4 km and a 7,6% average gradient.
If you prefer a short and gentle warm-up before challenging the Alps’ legend then you can choose the 53 km route which will take you around Brides-les-Bains to discover the Parc de la Vanoise. Back in Brides-les-Bains for a recommended stop at the feed station before starting the challenge of the day: 22,4km of ascent with 1715m of elevation to reach the Col de la Loze summit at 2304m. The view at the top will be worth the effort
You can also be part of the event by riding the 30 km circuit around Parc de la Vanoise and Brides-les-Bains. With 741 m of elevation, you will be able to enjoy the magnificent landscapes around Brides-les-Bains before joining the party where you will be able to share the participants’ free lunch, go to the free concert and enjoy the party atmosphere in the bars and restaurants around. Electric bikes are welcome on the 53km and 30 km events and a specific departure for female riders will take place on the 53 km event.
Your registration fee will be reimbursed in the event of cancelation by the organization for any reason connected with the COVID-19 pandemic.
