As well as providing accompanied rides and accommodation, we can help you in a number
of other ways too:
Bike hire - if you dont want the hassle of travelling with your own bike, we can
reserve hire bikes to be ready for the day of your arrival, or for collection the
morning after you get here. The bikes are carbon frame Giants, suitably geared for
all abilities and gradients with triple chainsets. On collection, each bike is set
up for each rider at the hire shop and as well as your pedals we would also recommend
bringing your own saddle if you are going to be doing a lot of riding.
Airport pick up - depending on whether you have brought your own bikes, and the number
in your group, we can pick you up from either Lyon airport, or Grenoble train station
for an additional fee. Contact us for more details, and see How to Find Us for more
info about travel options.
Drop off in Adjacent Valleys - in order to get the most out of your cycling holiday
we can drop you and your bikes off in adjacent valleys - this means you get to tackle
more cols without having to ride round trips of 160km or more (unless of course you
are in training for ‘La Marmotte’!)
Tools - use of tools and assistance with any repairs / adjustments as needed. As
the owner of 4 road bikes (at the moment!) and having built up my own bikes I have
most tools for most situations. For anything else there are three bike shops in
Bourg D’Oisans so you are never far from mechanical assistance or spares!
Riding Sportives - there are a number of cyclo-sportives run in the region (La Marmotte,
Marco Pantani, La Vaujany). We can arrange practice rides to familiarise yourself
with the route beforehand, and assistance with transport and support on the day.
