Alpe D'Huez...THE mythical climb of the Tour de France.
Your cycling holiday starts at Geneva airport and in an hour with our inclusive airport transfer you'll arrive at our stylish Chalet in Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley in the heart of the French Alps.
We'll be exploring the Tour de France Cols of the Aravis, Colombiere, Croix Fry, Joux Plane, Morzine Avoriaz. We'll nip into Italy and ride the Giro D'Italia time trial climb Col San Carlo, and the Petit St Bernard.
We will take on the Telegraph and the Galibier before hitting the slopes of the cycling mecca of Alpe D'Huez. After a night at Alpe D'Huez we'll head back towards Chamonix over the Glandon.
We'll be climbing around 2000M to 3500M over approx 100KM each day encouraged by our support and motivation! Don't worry about the distance, focus on the climbing - please read our article on this topic.
There is some flexibility in route choice depending on group dynamics, weather and road conditions. Contact us for more information.
Our tour provides one day off the bike (if you wish!) to discover the Alpine Mecca of Chamonix.
