An exclusive tour of exquisite future classic climbs. Ride them before the Tour de France does!
Available exclusively as a private tour in 2018, this is a 7 night / 8 day supported point-to-point tour, starting and finishing in Morzine. You’ve probably already conquered many of cycling’s iconic climbs and are looking for some new challenges. We have sought out a refined selection of outstanding climbs away from the crowds of the usual Alpine itineraries, to let you experience the solitude and splendour of this wild mountainous terrain.
We have a maximum of 14 guest places on this tour, with a support team of two riders, two vehicles and a mechanic. Half-board accommodation is included throughout in exceptional cycle-friendly hotels with a delicious 3 or 4 course meal every evening and a substantial breakfast every morning (always with plenty of carbs). We will also provide your transfers from Geneva airport – just get to Geneva, and we’ll do the rest.
The incredible Montvernier hairpins are now on the cycling map following their inclusion in the 2015 Tour de France; we present you seventeen more magnificent climbs of which only a handful have ever featured in the Grand Boucle.
The Future Classic Cols Tour is a serious challenge with daily ascents of 3,000m and 100+km of riding. Most of the climbs involve long and often steep sections so a good level of fitness is a prerequisite. This tour will appeal to strong club riders who possess a solid base of endurance riding.
On tour, our minibuses continually leap-frog the group with chilled water, High 5 energy gels & bars, fresh & dried fruit, Haribos, spare kit etc., and are on hand to assist with mechanical issues should they occur. We manage the group so that everyone can ride at the pace that they are comfortable with, and will regroup regularly, and always at the top of a col.
We are not here to beast you, but rather to encourage you, and share in the challenge and triumph of the conquest. We dine together every evening to celebrate the latest victories and share the stories of the day, and maintain a high staff to guest ratio to ensure your needs are always well catered for.
