Whether you’re a seasoned alpine cyclist or new to high altitude cycling, there’s an unforgettable alpine ride suitable for you – circular or out-and-back half or whole day rides, challenging Tour de France col climbs, and riverside rambles. All finish off with an easy return along the river valley back to base.
Alpine Velo’s self-guided road cycling holidays are mainly based at our bike chalet in Landry, a quaint alpine village (800m /2600 ft) in the Savoie’s Tarentaise mountains, just 7 kms along the valley floor from Bourg Saint Maurice. You can also stay up the hill at our smaller chalet (1100m, 400m ascent) near the ski resort of Montalbert above Aime. Both chalets are right at the heart of some of the best cycling in the French Alps. The Savoie Mont Blanc area, although not as famous as neighbouring Alp d’Huez, has more col climbs and isn’t anywhere near as busy!
