The Route des Grandes Alpes is pure Alpine splendour. Each year we cross the length of the French Alps with a group of cyclists and support crew and every time we are blown away by the beauty of the landscape and the enormity of the mountains.

From year to year the route, direction and people may change but the epic alpine passes, the quaint alpine villages and sense of adventure and achievement always remain.

Whilst the trip is open to all levels of cycling we do recommend a high level of fitness and mental toughness as it’s no easy feat!
