The Tour de France 2018 will feature 3 stages in the Alps, all of which are accessible from the Bike Weekender home base, but stage 10 in particular will pass right by our door, which we are really excited about.
All 3 stages feature some real thrills and challenges – including the Col de la Colombière, Plateau des Glières, Col de Romme, Cormet de Roseland, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col de la Madeleine, the infamous Lacets de Montvernier and a very welcome return to the beast that Alpe d’Huez.

It’s fun to watch other folk do cool stuff on bikes! Bike Weekender short breaks and cycling holidays guarantee maximum cycling time, with minimum hassle. When we are not riding, we like watching other people ride! We can’t guarantee that you will come back from your trip being able to emulate some of these guys, but you will have plenty of fun nontheless.
It’s amazing what these guys can do on a road bike!
Were these bikes really designed for this?
If you want a future Froome in the household, it pays to get them started on the bike young – a great passion to share with your kids!
