The itinerary has not yet been set but below are the unmissable possibilities for the Weekend in the Alps Package:
Col de la Loze: The "new kid in town".........since it's arrival this "car free" col created for cyclists has whipped up a storm. It has become one of the Tour de France's sweethearts practially overnight, and there is good reason for that. It winds and kicks up with some attitude, but when you reach the col the rewardes are unforgettable.
Cormet de Roseland: from the Beaufort side, leaving from Brides les Bains and looping right back round. This is a big 120km day and will end with riding back up to the chalet on the Courchevel climb, if everyone is feeling good
Col de la Madeleine: regularly climbed by the Tour de France as it is such a classic challenge. Named the "Serpentine of the Alps" this 26km climb is a real challenge and on a clear day the views across to Mont Blanc are well worth the climb.
Col de Petit St Bernard: peaking on the Italian border. It cruises up nicely and everyone loves it. Pop over the border and grab an Italian coffee….get some pics of the amazing view and then enjoy what all our guests have said is "the best, most fun descent" they have done…..a lovely flowing, cruising road back down to Bourg St Maurice.
If you are a private group of 8+riders we can discuss your bespoke itinerary too.
Bespoke packages are available for our Weekend Packages. Please get in touch if you have a group of 8+ riders who would like to ride the Alps Weekend on another date and we can put a bespoke package together just for you. Talk to Shelley at email@example.com.
Your home for the weekend will be one of our favourite hotels situated in Brides Les Bains, Hotel Les Chalets. Aude and the team at this family run, relaxed hotel have been looking after Alpcycles guests for many years now. The hotel has a heated outdoor pool, Health Suite with jacuzzi, sauna & steam room (open from 5pm daily and all included in your stay). **Sports massages can be arranged for our guests at an additional cost. There is also a restaurant where guests will eat on 3 of the nights and a bar.
Brides les Bains has a great selection of cafes, bars, shops and restaurants for when you are chilling off the bike too.
Non-riding partners: If you have a non-rider who would like to travel with you, Brides les Bains is a perfect location for hiking (we can reccomend many great trails) and relaxing. Please just ask if you would like to travel with a non-riding friend or partner and we can chat further.
