roads of the tour de france

ErgVideo invited Ottawa locals from the Cyclery and Nine2FivePro, to ride with members of coach David Walters' Southwest Bike Academy on many of the roads and famous climbs of the Tour de France. Don't confuse being well-spoken with being a push-over, these boys are tough as nails and eager to claim a few mountain-top wins over the Canucks. We cover the fabled Mt. Ventoux, Col Du Tourmalet, and Aubisque, among many others. But our rides in the lesser-known parts in the French countryside actually made for truly sensational ErgVideo rides. They are filled with tough climbs, screaming descents, and a some friendly competition. On our 2009 trip, we were hosted by renowned cycling coach Chris Georgas at his Hotel le Monastere, His location in Limoux is the perfect setting for unforgettable training or cyclotourism.

Alpe d'Huez 1080HD

ErgVideo visits one of the most famous climbs on all of cycling, and we did so in style! It's our first release in stunning and super stable 1080p HD. They look "extra sharp" in their Peaks Coaching Group kit as they attack the climb that every pro wants to win. The Alpe is not the highest nor the hardest climb in the French Alps, but it's always a tour stage finish, so it's always ridden aggressively to create winning margins in the tour's overall results. It ensures each ascent is painful to combatants, and legendary to fans. Staying true to the theme, our team rides this one hard, with plenty of attacking and breakaway chases. (1:33hrs)

This ErgVideo is in high quality 1080p HD, and is not supported on Windows XP nor Vista class machines. Please read our system requirements for more information. You can find the regular 720p HD version at the "hd collection" page.

Col du Galibier 1080HD

The mighty Col du Galibier has been on the Tour de France route 31 times so far, and despite only being a stage finish once, it's always an honor to be over the top first. At 2645m, it's often the highest point in the race and carries the prestigious Henri Desgrange prize. It's more than twice as high as Alpe d'Huez, but seems only half as famous. As you climb the absence of trees allows for spectacular views on this crystal-clear sunny day. The ErgVideo boys ride this one remarkably steadily, at least until the last few kilometres. It's great for sweet-spot steady state training, and we've packaged several ride variations from steady all the way, to a more dramatic power ramp-up as you near the top. It's a must-have in any climbing collection. (1:36hrs)

Col de la Bonette 1080HD

The Col de la Bonnette is the 4th highest paved pass in Europe. To claim the title of "Highest Paved road" the local Parks and rec built a soul-crushingly steep loop around the peak up to 2802m. It goes nowhere (except 2802m) and is the embodiment of pointlessness in its purest form. But everyone has to ride it! The ErgVideo team climbs this one progressively, ramping up the power throughout, ending with a full-blast effort to the top. Several session variations are provided from full-steady climbing to multiple power ramp intervals.  (1:52hrs)

Col du Glandon 1080HD

This pass has been on the Tour de France route 13 times, and we tackle it from the popular and quiet North-East route. It's hard enough to just climb it, but add some chilly headwinds coming over the ridge, and the ErgVideo boys really had their hands full. This is a fairly steady ride that gets progressively harder as you reach the top, and is great for sweet-spot steady state training, to hard threshold effort. We've packaged several session variations from easy pace, to Sweet-spot pace, to race-effort, and even some with more an amplified power ramp-up as you near the top. (1:41hrs)

Col d'Allos North and Pra Loup 1080HD

Pra Loup is a shrine to the French cycling fan, because it's where their very own Bernhard Thevenet finally defeated the great Eddy Merckx in the 1975 tour de France, ending Eddy's days in a yellow jersey forever. The Col d'Allos has been used in the Tour de France no less than 33 times, and our team climbs it from the rugged north side in this ErgVideo. Both climbs feature smooth team efforts and a steady ramping-up of the effort until only a few riders remain hanging on. This ErgVideo comes with several ride variations, including tempo and threshold level efforts, as well as ramping intervals. Use the ride designer to create your own workouts too! (1:46hrs)
