Cycling Tours with Alpine Cols

We make a distinction between cycling tours and coaching camps. The main objective of our cycling tours is to enjoy beautiful scenery and iconic climbs. They  typically go from A to B and may involve changing hotels every night. Coaching camps on the other hand are usually based in one single hotel, and the main objective is to help you become a better, faster, safer cyclist. 

Different people are looking for different things, so we have tried to 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!

COACHES, NOT GUIDES

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.

ICONIC CLIMBS

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!

ROADS LESS TRAVELLED

We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the roads less travelled and the hidden gems, where you can enjoy the mountains without the crowds.

GREAT HOTELS

Our clients are past the stage of youth hostels and camp sites. We look for the best possible hotels that remain affordable (usually 4*).

GREAT FOOD

You certainly need to eat plenty of carbs during a cycling trip, but that needn’t mean piles of pasta. Expect top quality meals.

FRIENDSHIP

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.

Corsica, l’Ile de Beauté (April 2023)

Difficulty   – 

The French often refer to Corsica as the Ile de Beauté (the island of beauty), and it’s for good reasons! The island’s natural beauty is particularly apparent in April, and without the summer crowds we will have the roads to ourselves. During the seven-day trip you will discover the majestic central spine of the island, the stunning west coast and the remarkable Cap Corse.

This is truly a cyclist’s paradise, and we adjust the amount of climbing to suit your current level. You will ride at your own pace and different groups will form so that you are with people at a similar level. Coaching is available (at no extra cost) for those who want to improve their technique for later in the season. More info to come…
