Style altitude bike blog and interactive route guides
Serre Chevalier is the HQ for online site, Style Altitude , featuring regular blogger, Gavin Baylis, who almost daily goes out either on his road bike or mountain bike, riding many of the classic routes in and around Serre Chevalier, plus many that are not so well known.
Currently he is training like many others for the Etape du Tour on Sunday 16th July which is the same route that the Tour De France will race on the 20th July finishing atop the Izoard.
What is unique in both the Bike Blog and Tour Guides on Style Altitude are the Strava GPS routes so you can see all the essential detail from distance through to elevation and average speed, as well as videos of the routes such as below.
The Tour Guides also provide useful information for cycling in the mountains, such as how to stay well hydrated and what to look out for.
- The Road Guide features all the main Cols as well as others further afield.
- The MTB / E-Bike Guide not only has the more popular routes but also rides to many of the high altitude fortresses in the area.
- And the Daily Bike Blog highlights many of his daily exploits in and around the valley and sometimes features Les Rando Chiens too.
