One Saturday per month from June to September, challenge the Grand Colombier on the scenic climb of Culoz on a traffic-free road. All events start from the Maison du vélo in Culoz where you can get a free coffee and finish at the top of the hors catégorie climb where you can get free food and drinks.

The cycling event you cannot miss this summer in Bugey Sud

ATTENTION : due to a landslide a few days ago, the road to the top of Grand Colombier from Culoz is currently closed. The car-free cycling event is maintained in July starting from the town Anglefort.

This is a no registration and no entry fee for this event.

The French department Ain with the brotherhood Félés du Grand Colombier organise a pit stop with food and drinks at the top.
