Six days riding from the shores of Lake Annecy in the northern Alps over some of the most famous climbs in cycling including the Roselend, Madeleine, Galibier, Izoard & Bonnette. We finish on the Cote d'Azur after a truly epic week of riding.

The most famous cycling terrain on the planet, the Alps is home to the biggest stages of the Tour de France each year and dozens of climbs are steeped in cycling history. Over this week we ride from Annecy to Menton taking in classic climbs and some great local routes. We start over the beautiful Cormet de Roselend before hitting the long Col de l'Iseran. Next up comes the Telegraph / Galibier before the legendary Col d'Izoard. In the Southern Alps we tackle the Vars, Bonette & Col du Turini before finishing on the coast in Nice.
