Coaching Camps 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!

COACHING

We pride ourselves first and foremost on the quality of our coaching. We do not employ guides: all our staff are officially certified cycling coaches.

FOCUS

We guarantee that you will improve your current skills, learn new ones and leave the camp a faster, more skilful rider.

RESULTS

We have helped hundreds of people to perform better in target events like the Haute Route, the Marmotte or the Etape du Tour.

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 training camp, 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.
