We know you have a choice of where to go for your cycling holiday. Different people are looking for different things, so to avoid disappointment let’s be clear about what we offer. To do these things well costs money, so we are certainly not the cheapest option. If that works for you, read on!
We do not employ guides: all our staff are officially-certified cycling coaches. They will help you learn to cycle faster and more safely in the mountains.
This is your chance to add your name to the legend of the Tour de France climbs, and we will take you to climb as many as you can handle!
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the roads less travelled and the hidden gems, where you can enjoy the mountains without the crowds.
Our clients are past the stage of youth hostels and camp sites. We look for the best possible hotels that remain affordable (usually 4*).
You certainly need to eat plenty of carbs during a cycling trip, but that needn’t mean piles of pasta. Expect top quality meals.
Last but not least: come as clients, leave as friends! We are doing this to share our passion for cycling, and we love meeting new people.
Mont Ventoux Cinglés Weekend
Climbing Mont Ventoux once is a decent challenge. Twice in the same day is hard: three times in the same day is completely nuts! Hence the name of the Club des Cinglés du Mont Ventoux: the word cinglé is best translated as nuts, crazy, bonkers…
Like many physical challenges, however, how hard it really is depends on how fit you are. The distance is 137 km and the total climbing 4,400m. Any reasonably well-trained cyclist riding at a sensible pace should in fact be able to achieve this within the allowed 24 hour period. It is not a race and you may stop as often as you wish.

Discover the Dolomites
Justly famous for their beauty, the Dolomites and the Italian Alps are truly a cyclist’s dream. This Bolzano-based trip showcases the very best of the area. On the way you will cycle over many of the great iconic climbs of the Dolomites and Italian Alps, including the Pennes, Sella, Costalunga, Erbe and of course the incomparable Stelvio (and many more).
During the 7-day trip you can expect to ride around 100km per day and climb 2,200m. Strong riders can do more (and you can always do less). You will be supported all the way by the Alpine Cols/Verve Cycling team riding with you and the support vehicle never far away. Read more…
