Peaks Challenge vs Tour de France: The Road Climbs Compared

Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is regarded as one of the hardest (but most rewarding) one-day bike rides in Australia… but does it stack up against a mountain stage of the 2022 Tour de France? Not a chance, you say? The stats are a whole lot closer than you might think.

The team at Bicycle Network break it down for you with three Ride High Country vs Le Tour climb comparisons:

  • Tawonga Gap vs Col du Galibier
  • Mount Hotham vs Col de la Croix de Fer
  • Falls Creek (Back of Falls) vs Alpe d’Huez

Head over to the Bicycle Network website for the full post. And if you haven’t started training for next year’s Peaks Challenge yet, what are you waiting for? It’s on again in March 2023.
