BOOK YOUR ALPINE RIDE NOW!
We’ve had a fantastic initial response and loads of interest in riding the Alps in 2022.
I’m pleased to be able to offer an Adventure Bike Tour in early July, and an Enduro/Lightweight Bike Tour in early September.
These will be 7 night tours, staying in hotels to keep the luggage weight down, and riding the high trails and mountain passes of the French and Italian Alps.
Same relaxed easy-going fun format as our UK Rides, just with better food, significantly more altitude and jaw-dropping views around every corner!
As per the UK rides, tours will be a maximum of 6 riders plus guide. If we fill both initial rides, I can potentially look to add more dates and run additional tours.
Those who’ve ridden with us before know we’re based in the UK, but to maximise your riding time in the mountains, our 2022 Alpine Tours start and finish at the foot of Mont Blanc in Saint Gervais les Bains in France.
This allows you to get there (and back) at your own pace – if you’re comfortable with a long blast down the French péage it’s perfectly rideable from the UK in a day, or alternatively take your time and spend a couple of days exploring the fantastic roads down through France. The choice is yours and a full GPS route will be provided upon booking.
As well as being a stunning destination in it’s own right, sitting at the foot of Europe’s tallest mountain, Saint Gervais is the gateway to the Alps. This makes it a perfect staging post for some high altitude adventure in France and Italy, and we’ll take in some of the highest paved and unpaved roads in Europe on our way.
We’ve hand-picked some great local hotels for the trip in stunning locations along the route. We’ll have multiple nights in some places so there’ll be a good mix of riding with and without luggage. Small groups with experienced guides leading a maximum of 6 riders, a perfect blend of incredible roads, high alpine passes and bucket-list offroad trails… this is exactly what your bike is for!
We’re running the Adventure Bike Tour from the 2nd to the 9th of July 2022, and the Enduro/Lightweight Tour from September 17th to 24th 2022.
The cost for either the Adventure Bike Tour or the Enduro/Lightweight Bike Tour is £1349 per rider in a shared Twin Room, or £1799 per rider in a Single Room.*
We’re requesting a deposit upon booking of £200 to secure your place on the Tour. Fill in the Booking Form below, and we’ll get back to you with a confirmation and instructions of how to pay the deposit.
*Single rooms are available by request, subject to availability and at an additional cost of £60 per person per night/£450 per week. We’ll try our best to meet demand on this, but due to the nature of the trip and the remote locations of some accommodation, single rooms may not always be available. Where this is the case, there will be no additional charge for nights where no single option exists/is available.
