French Alps cycling holiday – 2020

With its lush green valleys, cascading rivers, and majestic, snow-capped mountains, Rhône-Alpes is a quintessentially alpine destination. Roads linking the valleys pass over cols that have been immortalised by the Tour de France, and the road graffiti from the race’s frequent visits to the area is simply part of the furniture. A charming spa town nestled between the slopes of some of cycling’s most mythical climbs, Rhône-Alpes is a road cycling dream.

Hotel Aquakub ***

This trip is based in a comfortable *** hotel in Aix-les-Bains which gives good access to both riding and dining. The hotel has large modern rooms in a picturesque location adjacent to the Lac Bourget.

We cater for all dietary requirements and ask guests to let us know their preferences before arrival.

The Velusso cycling holiday experience is for enthusiastic cyclists who enjoy having fun both on and off the bike. Riding with experienced Ride Leaders is the ideal way to explore new destinations.

There will always be a range of fitness levels and riding abilities within a group. Our Ride Leader will ensure that we accommodate these differences in our route planning, as best as possible. Nobody will be left behind, and groups will always reform at the top of climbs, as well as riding together at a steady pace on the flats.

Certain trips are more suitable for experience riders, whereas others are perfect for beginners. This is indicated by the difficulty rating in the Overview tab on each trip page. Ask our team for more details of which trip may be best for your riding level.
