Take On Classic TDF Climbs In A Long Weekend!
Lake Annecy is one of the most beautiful and famous cycling areas in the world, often hosting the Tour de France, and home to our partners Bike Weekender. This Summer we are heading out for a European cycling weekend to take on some classic Tour climbs and to relax in the beautiful Aravis mountains.
Arriving on Thursday afternoon/evening we'll check into our lodge and have dinner, before hitting the road and the mountains for the next four days being guided on the best rides by local ride leaders. Fully supported on the road by the Bike Weekender wagon, you'll always have access to food, equipment and the possibility of a lift home if needed.
The Bike Weekender lodge/hotel is a relaxing home away from home in the stunning alpine village of Saint Jean de Sixt in the heart of the mountains. You'll get full breakfast everyday, a 3 course meal every night including wine, and full access to the gym and sauna. This break is the perfect cycling weekend to round out the summer.
