“It’s great to be able to mix our experience of offering convenient ski short breaks with Ski Weekender and our love of cycling with Bike Weekender. This area has so much to offer road cyclist of all ability levels, and in 4 days we can fit in a lot of riding with a variety of rides and climbs each day. Our weekends are perfect for weekend riders looking to come and try the Alpine climbs for the first time, or perhaps tick off iconic climbs such as Mont Ventoux or Alpe d’Huez” says Paul Turnbull, Managing Director.
Bike Weekender’s home are the Aravis Mountains - set back in the hills behind Lake Annecy - around the traditional mountain resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand. All regular locations for epic Tour de France action and 2018 featured the classic mountain stage (and Etape du Tour) from Annecy to Le Grand Bornand.
Their own chalet-hotel base is just an hour away from Geneva and provides a perfect home-from-home for cyclists, with so many great routes available from the door. It sits at the foot of both the Col des Aravis and Col de la Colombiere – both regular Tour de France climbs.
