Hi there! My name is Kevin and I am really into cycling. So much so, that I left my nice job in New Zealand and moved to the French Alps, in order to start Cycling Ascents. Cycling Ascents is about providing great cycling holidays in the French Alps, allowing guests to experience climbing roads featured regularly in the Tour de France. We are based right at the foot of Alpe D’Huez, in a market town called Bourg D’Oisans (pronounced ‘borg d-wazan’ – a bit of a mouthful for non French speakers!). As well Alpe D’Huez, a number of other famous climbs such as the Col du Galibier are within easy ride of our accommodation in Bourg D’Oisans.
I’m orginally from the UK, and have been cycling regularly since the age of 16. Starting with time trialling (as is the done thing in the UK!) I’ve also turned my hand to road racing and sportives, whilst always making sure I get out to ride just for the sake of riding! I’m also a level 3 cycling coach and keen practitioner of a ketogenic diet.
