Cycling Tours with Alpine Cols

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!

COVID-19: all future dates are necessarily provisional and subject to change and/or cancellation. If you decide to book, we will only request a modest deposit, fully refundable in case the pandemic makes it impossible for you to attend.


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.

Geneva to San Remo

Difficulty  – 

This is a variant on the classic Route des Grandes Alpes. We will start near Geneva on Sept 6th and head south over the Cormet de Roselend and the col de l’Iseran. We will enter Italy over the col du Mont Cenis and continue on the roads of the Giro d’Italia, tackling the three biggest climbs of the Piedmont Alps and finishing on the iconic coastal run-in to San Remo, including the Cipressa and Poggio climbs, where most of the Milan-San Remo action takes place.

We think this is a wonderful tour through unspoiled parts of Italy, enjoying the best the country has to offer. We will stay in beautiful hotels and will eat wonderfully well. It is a relaxed, end-of season trip and not a coaching camp (although coaching is always available on request). Read more…
