What's the minimum level of fitness required to participate?
This camp will be a bit more difficult than the ones we organize in Mallorca. With some of the most incredible climbs of the Tour de France, it will be a challenging and rewarding week on the bike. Lots of elevation also means lots of descents. Therefore, it is important to feel comfortable downhill as well.
Will there be different group levels available?
Depending on the level of participants or fatigue, we will be able to split into two different group levels (two different paces), each group led by one of our two guides.
Can we change group during the week?
Of course! You will be able to change group every day, depending of your level of fatigue.
What gearing would you recommend?
To be able to tackle long and steep climbs, we recommend you to use mountain gearing for this cycling trip, with a 50/34 compact chainring, and an 11/30 or 11/32 cassette.

Why are the Alps more expensive than Mallorca?
The costs of organization are completely different in the Alps than in Mallorca. The chalet we rent is a lot more expensive (but also super luxurious with a jacuzzi and a sauna), the cost of travel for the staff and all the equipments is high, and we will also have more staff working in the Alps, including a second guide on the road. It's a different experience.
Is the kit included in the price of the camp?
Yes, bib shorts, a jersey, and a pair of socks are included (worth 190 euros). You can also purchase other items (gilet, base-layer, etc) on site, at the wholesale rate. Read More
