The journey to the base hotel is already offered as an adventure tour so that your riding fun is significantly increased. From the starting point in southern Germany (Lake Constance or the south Black Forest) to the destination are two-day trips to about 200 km, which is already partly over the Route des Grandes Alpes (RGA) or other significant passes. How to ride these passes successfully, and how to approach curves properly, you will learn on this tour! The first day rides through beautiful landscapes, with the opportunity for photo stops.
We completely avoid highways in France.
Arrival is Friday evening at the starting hotel until about 19.00 clock, informal get to know each other, discuss the route and possibly the order of riders, changes to this are always possible. Also, a tiny workshop on riding techniques in general and especially in the Alps is planned.
On Saturday we start around 8.30 a.m.
The first stage rides through the valley of the Doubs and the Dessoubre to Jougne to the first stage hotel. a treasure chest of a hotel!
At the stage hotel, we can discuss the first day's experiences, make corrections to the riding style and prepare the trip for the next day.
To the destination, we ride south of Lake Geneva with its picturesque scenery. Of course, we make a stop there, a small snack is possible there. We continue over three passes of the Route des Grandes Alpes (RGA), Les Gets, La Colombiere, and the Aravis.
At the destination, we will stay in a *** hotel and will ride from Monday 4 beautiful tours, over some passes of the RGA, such as the Cormet de Roselend or the Col de l'Iseran, and passes that are not on the RGA, such as Kl. St Bernhard or Col de la Madeleine, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Glandon.
All tours are under observation and, if necessary, correction of riding style and, of course, safe riding in the mountains.
We allow ourselves one day break with the possibility of swimming.
On Friday morning we start the return journey, partly taking a different route than on the journey, to ride more passes.
The stage hotel*** will probably be the same as on arrival.
Saturday evening we will finish the trip, and collect impressions from the ride and Sunday is goodbye to the journey home.
