History and symbols of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is a territory located in the central and eastern part of France. The administrative region covers an area of nearly 70,000 km².
This region is marked by the contrast between the majestic Massif Central, its volcanic areas classified since 2018 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its granite highlands, its vineyards and numerous forests, and the departments located in the Northern Alps (Drôme, Isère, Savoie and Haute-Savoie) with its many imposing massifs.
The climate is of a great variety: mountain, semi-continental, Mediterranean and oceanic, and can reserve nice surprises by bike. The typical French villages that dot the route are a feast for the eyes and the heart.

The course is 100% on asphalt roads. The tar quality is variable and depending on weather conditions the roads can be greasy and cluttered with leaves, stones etc. We recommend that you use:
