The Short Break Road Cycling Holiday Specialist

 

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?

A Great Intro to French Cyclosportives

From Thursday 22nd of June to Monday 26th June 2017 we’ll be running a special Bike Weekender break at the Aravis Lodge to allow you to take part in this event.

All Bike Weekender trips include:-

  • Airport transfers
  • Bike friendly en-suite accommodation
  • Fully catered with great cycling food
  • Full route guides & support
  • Quality road bike hire available

Join our La Grand Bo weekend break 22-26 June and ride La Grand Bo sportive with us. During Friday and Saturday you can put in some warm up rides to familiarise yourself with the area and pick up tips on climbing, pacing, descending, nutrition and all the other skills essential to do well at an Alpine sportive. Join the Peloton on Sunday to ride around some spectacular scenery in a competitive environment.
If you would like to experience the atmosphere of riding in a French Cyclo-Sportive first hand, why not join us for a weekend of fabulous cycling, culminating in a ‘competitive’ timed ride along with 600 other cycling enthusiasts through some magnificent scenery- and have some great fun to boot!
