Road Cycling Holidays in the Alps

Intro to the Alps – 7 night Road Cycling Holidays from €325 Euros per person!

Intro to the Alps is a new concept designed for road cyclists who are looking for a gentle introduction to cycling in the Alps. If you’ve never been cycling abroad before and want to experience the stunning scenery, the seemingly endless climbs and descents and have the support of experienced alpine cyclists around you, then this is an opportunity not to be missed. Based from our Chalet in Les Gets (part of the Portes du Soleil) you will be in the perfect location to start and end your daily rides. We will meet each evening to discuss the planned rides for the following day. There will be local experienced riders accompanying you on each ride who can give advice and support. The fresh mountain air, the stunning views, the twisting winding cols and the local respect for road cyclists is an experience everyone should have, not to mention the famous Tour de France climbs close by.
