From Bourg d’Oisans, follow the signs to Briançon, cross over the Romanche River and turn left onto the D211, ready to tackle the 21 switchbacks up to Alpe d’Huez.
Once in the centre of the resort, follow signs to “Les Bergers” and carry on along the road towards the Col de Sarenne.
Below the road is the medieval archaeological site Brandes, classified as historical monuments. This former mining village of XIIIth and XIVth centuries is the highest in Europe. It is linked to the exploitation of a deposit of lead and silver.
Once over the col, cycle down into the Ferrand Valley, join the D25a after the village of Clavans le Haut until the RD1091.
