Loop 5: The Alpine Triple (3 days)

Stages: 10-12Mon 9th - Fri 13th July
Cost: £630Fundraising: £1200

Get your climbing legs on for three stunning stages in the Alps; Stage 10 combines new and old, excitement and Tour history. Stage 11 is short and sweet (and a little bit savage). And both prepare you for stage 12 stage which has three of the Alp’s toughest mountains laid out for you on a plate: cols de la Madeleine, Croix de Fer and Alpe d’Huez give you over 5400m of fantastic climbing and descending in one, glorious day on a bike.

**This is a Team Marie Loop

This will offer immediate thrills as well as very special memories. A brilliant Loop.
