In its second year, the Traverse High Alps Challenge is a road cycling challenge from the shores of Lake Geneva, across some of the toughest roads in Europe, before finishing at the sea in Nice.
The total height gained over the week is a over 11500m !!! Nearly one and a half times Everest from sea level!
Taking in some world famous ascents...
Col de la Colombiere, Col des Aravis, Les Saisies, Cormet de Roseland, Col de l'Iseran, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier, Col de Vars, Cime de la Bonette, all have been made famous by the Tour de France.
Please help us in our challenge not only to complete this challenge but also to raise money for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Charity. Particpants have paid for this trip so all the money raised is going directly to the charity.
