Cycling Tube Maps

To celebrate the Oisans area and the fantastic cycling in the region we have produced three Cycling Tube Maps printed on quality paper representing the cycling possibilities in the area.

Climbs of the Oisans Tube Map

First off is all the climbs reachable from our base in Bourg d’Oisans and is available as an A4 print or a larger 70cm x 50cm print.

Alpe d’Huez Tube Map

Celebrate the Tour de France arrival on Alpe d’Huez with our More Than 21 Bends Tube Map representation of Alpe d’Huez. Available in A4

La Marmotte Tube Map.

This iconic loop ridden by 7000 cyclist each year as part of the premier cycle sportive in July and also ridden by many others on an individual level throughout the summer months has been reproduced with additional height gain and other information. Available in A4.

Tour de France Alpe d’Huez Bike Rental 2018

1 Jun

With most of our bikes hired over the 19th-20th July you may think that is not possible to hire a bike over the very busy Tour de France period.

There are however a few options.

  1. Each year bikes are returned early or are not picked up at all so if you are in the area you can pop in and see what is available. Both our mechanics will be working full time to make bikes available for rent as soon as they are returned from hire. You may therefore have a few hours to hit Alpe d’Huez in an afternoon for example.
  2. There is more availability before the key dates so for example you can hire bikes for 3 days on the 15th-17 th July and tackle the local climbs before we get really busy.
  3. Send us an email and we can come up with a plan on how to maximise your bike hire. You may need to swap bikes because of booking patterns but you will be able to get some riding in.

Climbs of the Oisans Tube Map

28 May

Introducing our Climbs of the Oisans tube map

Inspired by a visit to London in 2016 we thought it would be great to come up with a tube map design of the local climbs with Bourg d’Oisans as the hub. What started off as a badly scribbled design by Phil has turned into this beautiful tube map designed by a graphic artist client who hired bikes to cycle Alpe d’Huez from us in 2017.

The design is exclusive to us and we have had 200 copies commissioned on high quality printed paper with a “foiled” PROMPT CYCLE CULTURE logo in the bottom right hand corner.

Cut to a size of 70cm x 50cm they fit perfectly into a Ribba Ikea frame.

Delivery is expected in the first week of June and all pre orders will be posted out in a strong poster tube as soon as we have them.

All orders received before 1st June 2018 will also receive a small collection of exclusive postcards.
