EVENT 1: Piemonte
EVENT 1: Piemonte—Stage 1Verona–Verona180kms / 4300mPasso FittanzeThe Veronese "hills" (north of Verona) in the Veneto region make a perfect place to start this journey. Less well known, full of surprises and some very tough climbs. The beautifully harsh Passo Fittanze, climbed from Avio, will be the undisputed centrepiece of this opening stage./images/DSC05953.jpgMountains

Quite a menu!/images/DSC05958-1.jpg
EVENT 1: Piemonte—Stage 5Varese – Biella193kms / 4060mSan Antonio, Cucco, ColmaThe double-whammy finale of Passo's Cucco and Colma make this stage truly exceptional.

EVENT 1: Piemonte—Stage 6Biella – Pinerolo204kms / 4310mCroce Serra, Monte di Belmonte, Forcola, Lys, BraidaThe formidable Colle di Lys is the centrepiece but more 'religious climbs' such as the Monte di Belmonte maintain the intensity of the ride throughout the day./images/DSC06565.jpgRedtrue

EVENT 1: Piemonte—Stage 9Valberg – San Remo214KMS / 5300MSinna, Turini, Termini di BaiardoA superb descent section to open then over the Cols de Sinna and Turini and into Liguria (back into Italy) to check out some exciting new roads on our way down to the wonderful town of San Remo.

EVENT 1: Piemonte—Stage 10San Remo To Carros180kms / 45750mPasso Ghimbegna, Madonna di Giorbio, Chateauneuf.The first 100km explores the best of Liguria before we plunge down to Ventimiglia. Arriving then in Monaco, of course the Madonna climb has to be on our path. A real Classic Climb to end Event #1!/images/P1040927.JPG
EVENT 2: Alps
EVENT 2: Alps—Stage 11Carros – Carros206kms /4450mMont Vial, Blaine, Pierrefeu (gravel).The Classic loop stage that has opened the CCC S Alps forever. I just love this route. But with a cheeky gravel climb bonus this time!/images/IMG_0667.jpg

EVENT 2: Alps—Stage 14Dignes Les Bains – Barcelonette189kms / 4750mAllos, Champs, CayolleOn our way north the "Trio Terrible" loop (Allos,Champs,Cayolle) cannot be missed. Surely one of the best combo's road riding in the mountains can offer./images/IMG_5631-1.JPG
EVENT 2: Alps—Stage 15Barcelonette – Valloire179kms / 5300mVars, Izoard, Granon, GalibierFour Mighty Giants make the profile of this epic stage pretty simple. The first time the 'up & back' Granon climb will feature in a CCC./images/IMG_0842.JPG
EVENT 2: Alps—Stage 16Valloire – St Jean De Maurienne182kms / 4800mTelegraphe, La Toussuire, Croix de Fer, Beau Plan, Sapey.A tough but majestic loop around St Jean de Maurienne is the centrepiece of this typical CCC take on these Classic climbs./images/img_5797.jpg
EVENT 2: Alps—Stage 17St Jean De M – Moutiers161kms / 5100mMadeleine, Valmorel, Naves,La PlagneTotally new parcours here amongst the highest roads. The Col de la Madeleine via the "old road" opens the stage, then we take on the best climbs around Moutiers./images/img_5810.JPG

Event 3: Alps / Ardeche
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 21Grenoble – Crest208 kms / 4450mCol de la Machine and many other Vercors treasuresPretty much the best of the Vercors climbs, plateaux and gorges here. Not much missing!/images/img_1090.JPGBluetrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 22Crest – Malaucene190kms / 4300mPennes, Soubeyrand, Mont VentouxThe remote and rugged beauty of the Drome region leads us due south to the unmissable Mont Ventoux "en finale". Nice day out./images/img_2617.JPGRedtrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 23Malaucene – Ales195kms / 2200mCol de Champ Paga, Col de BourricoCrossing the Rhone means less climbing, more time to wander and explore like a 'cyclo-tourist', maybe?! Could be more café stops than usual?!/images/img_1393.jpgRedtrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 24Ales – Ales208kms / 3200mMany of the Ardechoise favouritesThis is the first of two stages which explore the best roads of the extremely popular, multi-day "Ardechoise" sportive. Although the collective total of climbing is not excessive, the road is rarely flat. It's tough terrain, full of such charm and character. This remote area of France is one of the most genuinely surprising areas to ride in you can find. It needed a loop stage such as this to have time to explore its dense network of narrow roads./images/img_1607.jpgRedtrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 25Ales – Aubenas204kms / 3900mPendedis,Tranchée de Malons, Tastavin.Part Two of the best bits of the Ardèche. Its beauty is equal to its remoteness. Simple as that./images/c18.JPGWhitetrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 26Aubenas – Chaumont Le Bourg200 kms / 3900mMezilhac, Mont GerbierAnother feast of remoteness. This stage will take us from the northern reach of the Ardeche, around the town of Le Puy ( capital of the very special volcanic Puy region) and into the vast wooded region of the Livardois. We rode this in 2017, but here we ride a new version in the opposite direction./images/img_4888.JPGWhitetrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 27Ch –Le-B – La Bourboule184kms / 3600mMont Dore ( Col de Croix St Robert)The second of the original CCC Cevennes stages ridden 'backwards'. The spectacular road up onto the Mont Dore will undoubtedly provide a superb finale to a stage which takes us to the northern tip of our journey, a mere 80 kms south of Clermont Ferrand./images/img_1410.jpgWhitetrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 28Bouboule – Laguiole203kms / 4100mPuy Marie ( Pas de Petrol)My favourite part of the Massif Central. New stage-end in the best "knife town" in Europe!/images/img_8201.JPGBluetrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 29Laguiole – Florac204kms / 3700mAubrac, Trebatut,MontmiratThe Aubrac National Park is a wild, desolate place populated mainly by its very distinct rusty-coloured cows. It's an impressive place to ride through. This stage ends in Florac, close to the Gorges du Tarn, which offer more drama of a different kind./images/img_1402.jpgBluetrue
Event 3: Alps / Ardeche—Stage 30Florac – Montpellier196kms / 3600mEspinas,Mont Aigoual, Minier.The final stage in this exceptional region includes the mountain which perhaps defines the character of this area better than any other : Mont Aigoual. We approach it via the "best side" and combined with the Col de Minier has the making for an unforgettable ride. After riding up to the 'roof' of the Cevennes our route takes us through some more stunning landscape and villages on our way down to sea level where we finish just outside Montpellier. The 65RIDE will then take a break of three weeks before re-starting with Event 4 from this same point. Destination the Pyrenees and then Cantabrico./images/img_8146.JPGBluetrue
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees—Stage 31Montpellier – Castres219kms / 3620mBaraque de Brai, Femme Morte, Croix des Deux SousPart Two opens with a wonderful route through the Montagne Noire region, crossing the Herald and Tarn departments. Seldom visited region with so much to discover. Much more than a "transition stage"!/images/c6-1.JPGRedtrue
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees—Stage 32Castres – Ax Les Thermes210kms / 4050mFontbruno, Vammigere, Chadnelier, PradelFrom the Tarn to Arriege, skirting round the medieval town of Caracassonne, this stage brings us finally into the Pyrenees via one of it's better doors : the Col de Pradel. 'Little' brother of the Port de Pailheres, this very rural, wooded climb offers an equally generous vista of what follows from it's summit./images/dsc_0693.JPGRedtrue
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees—Stage 33Ax Les T – Amelie Les Bains180kms / 4200mPort de Pailheres, Dent, Auzines, PalomereThe Crown Climb ( Pailheres) of the Arriege region opens this stage and offers riders superb vistas of the Canigou Massif from the top. Beyond can be seen the first Spanish mountains, waiting expectantly for us. This region is rich in impressive Cathar castle ruins several of which will be seen on this stage. The dense network of narrow roads makes this area a treat to explore. You may even see a bear....!/images/dsc03300.JPGRedtrue
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees—Stage 34Amelie Les Bains – Girona190kms / 3000mMirailles, Figuier Bosc della Margallia, Portell (Els Angels)The first of 18 stages that weave their way across the French / Spanish border from East to West. A wonderful coastal route but with the mountains never far enough away from us to forget what lies ahead!/images/img_3393.JPGWhitetrue
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees—Stage 35Girona – Girona188kms / 3000mEl Far, Palomera, SesplanesThe Girona Hills are deservedly favoured by many pro's as the perfect training ground. Gradients are never too harsh, roads flow in a twisty dance with the landscape and the gentle climate makes this area very special for cyclists to explore. The gravel network is equally impressive, so we have to include a bit here and there!/images/dsc03170.JPGWhitetrue
EVENT 4: East Pyrenees—Stage 36Girona – La Molina191kms / 4400mCollfred, Vidra, Creueta (la Molina)A new route from Girona to the lofty ski station of La Molina, often featured in the Vuelta as a stage finish. But of course via the unmissable Collfred! Perhaps the toughest climb of these ten stages..../images/dsc03211.JPGWhitetrue
