Tour de la Resistance is a 3 day bike-packing adventure on the roads and tracks in the mountains surrounding Lake Annecy. Just like the classic La Resistance one-day event, TDLR is not a race but a mini-adventure over challenging terrain where team work is essential. For 2018 we have made a few changes to the route to bring riders closer to the story of Les Maquisards on the Plateau of Glieres. Riders will now spend two nights in mountain refuges in and around Plateau des Glieres. Final route details will only be revealed in the days before the event but participants should be prepared for days of up to 120km / 3,000m ascent on a mixture of road and off-road.
