This is a six-stage tour over some of the most famous cols in the French Alps, such as Alpe d’Huez, Glandon, Iseran and Galibier, and dipping down into the Provence region for Puy Saint Vincent and the Izoard. Throughout the rides you'll be fully supported as you cover about 60 miles (100km) a day (can be adjusted for riders of differing abilities). The tour is based around small campsites in stunning areas with views over the mountains and lakes. This is a small, personalised tour run by Dutcho-born cyclist Matthijs, a professional chef who works and cycles in the Alps. He's branching out to share the best bits with the rest of us. The tour price includes includes campsite fees, support, GPX files, luggage transport, bars, powder and a lunch break. A contribution of €25 per day ensures you get fuelled up with a good breakfast and dinner.
