10,000 Vertical Metres Challenge
Join us for this epic challenge where we will take on 10,000 vertical metres of climbing over the beautiful french alps. During this week, we will give you an opportunity to ride some of the stages of past and present Tour de France, tackling some big heights and lots of kilometers while making sure that over the week you achieve 10,000 vertical metres of climbing and a general 100km+ per day. We’ll take you to a selection of some of the best Tour mountain passes, including the Col de Joux Plane and Col de la Ramaz as well as a few hidden gems of the mountains, some fantastic flatter scenic routes with amazing ice cream and tucked away cafes.
We’ve got everything covered for you, with a chef, support vehicle and of course plenty of cold beers and wine thrown in for good measure. A typical day will be waking up to a delicious breakfast that will be put on by our hosts, then we will hit the roads and tackle the mountains. After that we will either have a picnic in the mountains or come back to the chalet where you will have lunch laid out for you to refuel. The afternoon is your own time to explore the area, swim in the lakes or test out the local brewery before coming back to the chalet for a delicious two course meal with unlimited wine and beer for dinner.
