French Alps - Topbike
Feast of Ascension | July 23-29 2020
Grenoble - Grenoble
With the Topbike French Alps Base Tour we will stay in the one accommodation for the whole tour (6 nights/7days) – a small family run converted farmhouse right at the base of the famous Alpe d’Huez.
Having our base in the town of Le Bourg d’Oisans, means little packing and unpacking, and more time for riding and relaxing. We are in the heart of the French Alps and our playground is only a few pedal strokes away.
In this tour we knock over the famous cycling climbs of: Alpe d’Huez, Col de Glandon, Col de la Croix de Fer, The Galibier, Les Deux Alpes, along with some lesser known ones: The Ornon, Col de Morte, La Berarde, Notre Dame and Col de Sarenne.
Breakky and dinner each night will be a local, traditional, hearty, in-house affair. Lunch will usually be a picnic somewhere en route.
Enjoy the thrill of cycling the celebrated TDF climbs of the French Alps whilst enjoying the French countryside and local culture with this unique opportunity to be based in one idyllic alpine location in France …
2020 Tour Dates
Base Tour: French Alps
July 23-29 2020
(Grenoble – Grenoble)
Topbike Base Tour: French Alps
Topbike’s Base Tours are designed to be a little shorter (7 days) and we don’t move location. So, once you arrive and unpack, that’s it for the week which leaves plenty of time for riding your bike, having picnic lunches and exploring the local area.
Base Tours are held in what we call ‘our local digs’. We know these areas well, the best places to ride, the best places to eat, the best places to hang out once the riding is done. Our guides ride with you and showcase their local routes. The support vehicle is back at base on call should the need arise.
With a group limited to 13 places only, this will be a tour for riding and relaxing and of-course the fabulous local French cuisine. With a small group you’ll receive personal and attentive care for the length of the tour.
2020 Tour Price: $3990.00 (AUD) per person
[Places are limited to 13 clients in total (with 3 staff).]
