Road Cycling Club & Group Holidays – Custom Breaks in France
We know that Britain has some great cycling routes and terrain which many UK based cycle clubs and groups ride regularly. But imagine how good it would be to head out together in warmer, sunnier weather, with quieter roads, far more considerate drivers, and a comfy “club-house” with chilled beers and great food awaiting your return…
Bike Weekender is here to offer your club or group a hassle-free weeklong tour or long weekend cycling in France, with first-class riding, panoramic scenery, exceptional hospitality and the chance for your club to simply relax, socialise, and above all, ride.
Unlike many operators who are fixed to offering only one location and accommodation, we are able to provide so much more.
We can arrange short breaks, weekends and longer weeklong tours for cycling clubs and other groups of 6 or more throughout the summer months, from May to September.
We offer a wide range of locations across the French Alps, Provence and Mediterranean Coast, with accommodation and riding tailored to suit precisely what you’re looking for.
Custom Made Group Cyling Tours:
- Range of great locations in France
- Itineraries planned with expert knowledge
- Great cycle-friendly accommodation
- Route guides or vehicle support possible
- Quality Road Bike Hire available
Exclusive use of a Dedicated Chalet-Hotel for Larger Groups & Clubs
For larger cycling groups of 20 or more, we can arrange exclusive use of our home base, the Aravis Lodge, on the edge of the pretty ski resort of La Clusaz – just 1 hour’s transfer from Geneva airport. This is where Bike and Ski Weekender were born, and it’s where we’ve developed our highly praised short break format.
Everything about the Lodge is set up to make a cycling trip as effortless as possible – off the saddle at least!
Bike facilities (secure storage and workshop), leisure facilities (sauna, massage room, gym) and social facilities (lounge, TV room, large licensed bar, garden and terrace) all combine to make this a relaxed, welcoming and comfortable home-from-home.
Great food, prepared by a professional chef team, and the on-site presence of our dedicated team for route planning, bike rental and vehicle support round things off…
It really is the perfect base for a truly memorable custom cycling holiday.
Short Airport Transfer, Amazing Riding Right Outside the Door…
The Aravis Lodge is just an hour’s transfer from Geneva airport, which means that it’s possible for your group or club to pack in a lot of cycling, even over the course of a short 3 or 4 night break. The Lodge is right in the heart of the Aravis Mountains and close to beautiful Lake Annecy, making a wealth of incredible alpine and lakeside riding available, right out the door.
The Tour de France is a regular visitor to the area and again, in 2016, will be passing right by the Lodge. Pit yourselves against famous Tour de France cols like the Aravis, Colombière, Croix-Fry or Forclaz, or take a more leisurely approach on the 2009 time-trial route around Lake Annecy.
If you arrange a vehicle-supported trip, it’s possible to combine a stay in the Lodge with even more classic Tour de France riding to the south. The col d’Izoard, col de la Madeleine and Alpe d’Huez await those with enough stamina…
So, if you have a group of 6 or more looking for an amazing break, let us know your requirements and we’ll work with you to arrange your perfect club or group cycling holiday.
