Road bicycle racing is the cycle sport discipline of road cyclingheld on paved roads. Road racing is the most popular professional form of bicycle racing, in terms of numbers of competitors, events and spectators. The two most common competition formats are mass start events, where riders start simultaneously though sometimes with a handicap and race to set finish point; and time trialswhere individual riders or teams race a course alone against the clock. Stage races or "tours" take multiple days, and consist of several mass-start or time-trial stages ridden consecutively.

I've ridden some cool cycling events. But the thought of entering a three-day Haute Route event, much less a seven-day Haute Route -- especially the Alps or Dolomites events -- gives me the shivers. Haute Route is a global series of competitive multi-day cycling events for amateur riders, all of which involve tons of climbing.

Why not collect some passport stamps on the way and try these European cycling sportives. Going out every day on the bike for a ride is great but where do you actually test the fitness and leg work you've built up month after month.
