Riders ascending the Galibier on stage 17 of the 2017 Tour de France.
The legendary Col du Galibier (2638 m), in the Dauphiné Alps near Grenoble is renowned for being one of the toughest Alpine cycling climbs.
This iconic mountain road has been in use since the middle of the 18th century, providing the backdrop to salt smuggling, numerous mountain expeditions, and even a Spanish invasion.
When, in 1911, the organisers of the Tour de France decided to send the route over the stupendous, snow-clad mountain landscape between the Maurienne valley and Col du Lautaret, a cycling legend was born.
Since then, the Galibier has become a firm fixture in the Grand Boucle. More recently, the mighty Col du Galibier has also become a renowned, if slightly intimidating, must-do climb for amateur cyclists.
