This is an eight-day trip with six days of some of the toughest but most rewarding riding in the world, taking you the entire length of the French Alps. This epic ride crosses some amazing passes, including the Colombiere, Aravis, Saisies, Iseran, Telegraphe, Vars, and the beautiful slopes of the Izoard. You'll end the ride after a 15km descent into Menton, where it'll be time to relax and rest by the sea. After a pretty punishing week, fly out of Nice or stick around for a few days at the beach. Price includes airport transfers, accommodation and meals, vehicle support, professionally qualified mechanics, breakfasts, picnic lunches, water and soft drinks (on rides), GPS files and a high resolution photo package. If you prefer you can also hire bikes through Velovation too.
