This is an immense five-day trip with three incredible days of riding. After arriving in Geneva, you'll be met by the Velovation team and taken to Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise where the tour starts. You'll enjoy a meal at your hotel and talk through the next few days' riding. Over the course of the trip, you'll climb the Iseran, the Galibier, the Glandon, the Madeleine and, if that's not enough, the Alpe d’Huez as well. The price includes airport transfers, accommodation and meals, full vehicle support, professionally qualified mechanics, all 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.
