I would do a search of route mapping sites like

www.mapmyride.com
www.bikely.com
www.ridewithgps.com
www.bikeroutetoaster.com
and the like. Even try a search of Google or Bing for bike routes in that area. Search the forums for Alpe d'huez because someone just posted a bunch of beautiful pix of a ride thru that area. You can PM him.

Route Maps? Get your self some Michelin maps and create your own routes. Borders or Barnes and NOble sell a large bound Michelin map which includes maps of all the major cities as well as the complete country. It is a scale of 1cm = 2km. I find the michelin maps to be excellent and really easy to create routes taylored to your ability, time and comfort level.

Have a great trip! We recently spent 3 days in Bourg D' Oisans, and had a couple of really great rides.

+1 on Michelin maps. Get one map for each region that you want to tour. Once you decide on route, make xerox copies for each day or two.
