Due to the warm climate, pure mountain air, incredibly clean fresh water, this stunning part of the world is also ex-pat home to many of the worlds best endurance, thrill-seeking mountaineering and triathlon athletes.

The spectacular Alps form a natural border between Switzerland, France and parts of Italy. We’ll ride the legendary Cols of Glandon/ Croix de Fer, Telegraph/Galibier, Izoard, up to the highest paved pass in Europe the Cime de la Bonette at 2802m and many more of the climbs and cycling routes made famous by the Tour de France.

In the south of France, Provence, we’ll ride undulating roads through the fragrant lavender fields, along gorge roads carved out of solid rock by centuries of water flow and pause in villages that time forgot. While in the region we’ll ride the ‘Giant of Provence”, Mont Ventoux and stop for obligatory photo’s and marvel at the lunar-like landscape at the 1902m summit.
