Prompt d211 photo comp seven 1 bike 6 ascents of Alpe d’huez in 1 day

5 Jun

We love great stories here and nothing comes more epic than tackling alpe d’huez 6 times in one day. Each year the Dutch arrive en mass for alpe d’huzes.  They ride up 6 times either as a team or individually raising money for cancer research.


Gerard managed the climb 6 times finally returning his prompt hire bike at 9pm

Back to Alpe d’Huez now with Gerard who was here last June to compete in the Alpe d’Huzes event at the beginning of June. Alpe d’Huzes is a dutch charity event where the competitors climb Alpe d’Huez 6 times in one day for Cancer charity. Last year I believe they raised over 30 million Euros.

If you hired or bought a bike from us in 2013 we are after your photos. The more unusual the better. We will be choosing one photo at the end of December and that lucky person will receive one of our exclusive Alpe d’Huez Jersey. Simply attach your photo to an email and send it in to us.
