La Grand Bo – Haute-Savoie Mountain Cyclosportive
There is a long tradition of road racing in France, so it’s not uncommon to come across a cycling event on any given weekend, particularly during the summer months.
Our most local event, ‘La Grand Bo’ takes place around the last Sunday in June and gives riders the opportunity to ‘race’ up some of our local cols, made famous by the Tour de France.
Whether you want to pit yourself against some very competitive locals, or enjoy a ride around some amazing terrain with likeminded companions, why not give our local event a crack?
