Tour de la Resistance is a 3 day bike-packing adventure on the roads and tracks in the mountains near Lake Annecy. 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.
Tour de La Resistance is a team-only event and entries are limited to 50 individuals in teams of 2 or more riders. The entire ride is unmarshalled and un-signposted so just like the members of the resistance last century, team work and self-sufficiency are key.
