Helping you create a cycling trip of a lifetime on the top road cycling climbs in the French Alps
The cycling cols of the French Alps - climbing by bike is no mean feat. I can help plan, motivate and support you and your group before your visit to the French Alps and also give you some inspiration for your alpine cycling challenge
Many groups cycling the cols of the French Alps wish the flexibility of planning their own itinerary and accommodation however recognise that its no mean feat to plan their trip to the cycling cols of the French Alps without help from a local expert.
From itinerary planning, to discussing the severity of a specific Col, to airport transfers and hotel recomendations - I can help.
Drop me a line with an outline plan and I will come straight back to you with an idea of my fees. I offer this service chargeable as an hourly rate however its a flexible service and we can quote a day rate, or a fee for a specific job.
I'm available to talk through your requirements and you can me on France (whatsapp) +33680926408 to discuss your needs or drop an email firstname.lastname@example.org with an outline of your plans
About me and my cycling palmares
I started cycling in 1986 and was a member of the Warrington Road Club and the Manx Viking Wheelers during my cycling career V1.0.
Fast forward to 2000 and I was living in the Isle of Man when I started riding again, initially mountain biking and completed theIsle of Man End to End mountain bike event twice.
2007 we moved to France I switched back to road cycling and began my Version 2.0 of my cycling career.
During my time in France I have completed the Marmotte Granfondo on 4 occasions. 6 rides in the Etape du Tour. I hold a French racing license being a member of VC Mont Blanc. I've ridden multiple road races and local granfondo/sportive events which contrary to popular belief are very much a race here in France! I've won my age group a couple of times in local events.
I'm not a natural climber however in a typical year I'll ascend over 100,000M in total and I'm equally happy in the mountains as I am doing a lap of Lake Annecy or Lake Geneva.
With my Wife Jude we've hosted groups for the Tour de France, Tour du Mont Blanc, Geneva Nice, Marmotte Granfondo and Etape du Tour and many Alpine Cycling weeks for private individuals and large groups. We previously owned and ran a luxury catered chalet business 'hands on' in the Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley.
I hold a French transport license hence I am fully legal to transport passengers in France and I have a French Carte de Sejour (Brexit Withdrawal Agreement card) that means I am authorised to work and live in France post Brexit with no additional visa requirements. I also hold a First Aid Qualification.
