Dear Cyclist

Fancy a bit of the best cycling on the planet next summer? The Alpine Cycle Tours team is pleased to announce our summer programme for 2012. Aimed at keen cyclists, we offer training camps and tailor-made stays for riders of all ages and abilities at our two beautiful chalets in Ste Foy Tarentaise (the epicentre of the Classic Alpine Cols made famous by ‘Le Tour’).

More details are available on our website but here is a taster of what we have planned in 2012

4 -11 June Time Megeve Training Camp - the week is geared up to taking part in the cyclosportive (3 distances to choose from) on Sunday 10th. From £895 p/p

16-23 June Alpine Cols Training Camp - a great variety of climbs – taking in all the nearby cols featured in recent Tours. From £895 p/p

Tour de France and Etape Camp 6-15 July - SOLD OUT
In association with Bethel Cycle of Connecticut, this camp includes participation in the Etape du Tour and one or two of the stages as well as watching the race first hand. Greg Pelican owner of Bethel Cycle and a US National Duathlon winner has this to say :

'We scouted out the riding and accommodation in September 2009. It truly was a fantastic experience for all of us…… My vision is to give our club members and core customers the opportunity of a lifetime. Experience the thrill of riding the most beautiful and challenging roads in the world while enjoying first-class accommodation and great food.'

10-17 Sep Bosses du 13 – camp geared to taking part in the last major cyclosportive of the season in Marseille (3 distances to choose from). From £925 p/p.

Tailor-made stays throughout the summer

We can also offer tailor-made programmes for groups of 6 to 16 cyclists (larger groups can be accommodated on request) throughout the cycling season from May through to late September. Just drop us an email and we will gladly arrange something to suit your requirements. We can accommodate individuals or smaller groups wanting to use the chalet as a base.

And don't forget, non-cycling spouses, partners or friends are also welcome and will find a huge choice of alternative activities to keep them busy from sports to sightseeing - just check out the website for details.

Why choose us?

We are ideally situated in the middle of one of the world's great cycling regions - literally within minutes of three famous Alpine Cols.
Our two chalets, Merlo and Pecchio, offer the highest standards of luxury and facilities in the area. We also have ride-support vehicles and a custom-made road-bike trailer.
Our prices are surprisingly affordable, whilst we are also committed to providing a fantastic cycling experience combined with luxury accommodation and great food.

Experienced Staff – rides are planned and led by Chris Harrop, assisted by members of our local cycling club. Chris is an avid cyclist and competes regularly in Cyclosportive events like the Marmotte and Time Megeve. Follow Chris’s blog to get an idea of the fantastic cycling (and skiing and other activities) in the area.

We look forward to welcoming you to our chalets in Ste Foy.
