Take on renowned Tour de France climbs on this epic cycling adventure
The French Alps is one place that should be on every cyclist's bucket list - Its tough riding (we're not going to lie!) but in our opinion there's very few places that can compete with the views you'll take in, and the satisfaction of getting to the top of an Alpine col is second to none.
The climbs here are firmly planted in the history of cycling, and we look forward to giving you the opportunity to tackle them for yourselves. We've put together a tour that takes in the most famous cols in the area, whilst also taking in some of the lesser known gems.
We'll transfer you from Geneva airport over to our first base in the Maurienne valley, where over the coming days you'll experience the Col du Glandon, the Croix de Fer and the Col du Chaussy. You'll have an unforgettable day in the saddle as we transfer over to Bourg D'Oisins via the Col du Telegraphe and the Galibier, before enjoying a 50km descent down the Col du Lautaret.
From here we'll ride the lesser known climb of the Col D'Ornon, the Col de Sarenne as well as the 21 hairpins of the mighty Alpe D'Huez.
The team will be there to support you every step of the way, with detailed briefings, ride leader support, scheduled food stops and quality hotel accommodation. This week is not just a cycle tour, its an incredible once in a lifetime experience for any cycling enthusiast.
