A Warm Welcome

Our small and friendly team will help you settle into your chalet accommodation, prep your equipment, and get ready for the week ahead.

Whilst your hosts prepare you a delicious two course dinner, our cycle support team will be on hand to offer information and advice on how to tackle the following days' ride. (Depending on the timing of your airport transfer, there may even be time for a short familiarisation ride to get your legs in order and iron out any equipment or maintenance niggles.) You'll have the opportunity to relax with your fellow cyclists and share stories over dinner before heading to bed ready for the first days' riding.

Flexible Itineraries

We (primarily) offer full week holidays and holidays focused around the major alpine cycling events taking place throughout the summer months. (It may be possible by special arrangement to cater for a shorter or longer break.)

Your itinerary for the week can be tailored to the experience and requirements of the group.
(Due to our extensive local knowledge and always having our support vehicle on hand we are able to tailor the daily rides for all the riders in your group.)

Non-riders are also welcome to join our trips and we can advise and assist with the wealth of other activities available in this beautiful part of France.
