Intro to Alpine Cycling Week

Join one of our Intro to Alpine Cycling weeks

Our Intro to Alpine Cycling weeks are for people who would like to combine some seriously stunning cycling with an exploration of French summer alpine culture.  Whether you are new to cycling or would prefer a more leisurely holiday which doesn’t involve conquering a col every day, this week may be for you.  You decide on the level of challenge you are willing to try and our team will be there with coaching tips and the trusty support vehicle providing as much help as you need.  If you haven’t used a road bike before you can rent a bike from us and we’ll give you all the tips you need to get started.  If you’d prefer to bring your bike out, whatever style you prefer, that’s fine too.  We can also help you to arrange rental of an electric bike, which can be a really fantastic way to see the mountains if you’re new to cycling.  Our team will help you unpack your bike and if you need some more expertise there’s a great English speaking bike shop called Torico just around the corner.

When you’re not cycling there will be plenty of time to relax and explore the area.  As the snow melts away it uncovers a hidden world of waterfalls, French farmhouses, artisan crafts & lush pastures.   Cattle graze among wild flowers abuzz with bees, local producers turn out amazing cheeses and honey, while pretty market towns burst into life.  We’ll take you to alpine lakes where you can swim in crystal clear water and enjoy a picnic on the grassy banks, explore markets and relax with coffee and croissants or a glass of wine in the charming cafes.

Back at the chalet we are there to ensure your holiday is wonderful.   The chalet is well equipped with a large lounge, reading areas, garden loungers and balconies in each room.  A free sports massage is part of your package and our chef is fabulous.
