Col cycling and Yoga on the Cote d’Azur
If you are a keen cyclist with a partner who loves yoga, this holiday is for you. We’ve combined classic cycling in the hills behind Nice with a yoga package so you can both enjoy the Cote d’Azur in different ways.
The cycling group will enjoy classic local routes including riding along the Grande Corniche and over Col d’Eze, cycling around Monte Carlo over the famous GP course, climbing Col de la Madone made famous by Lance Armstrong. In fact some top Trek bikes are named after this climb (or near anagrams of) including Emonda & Domaine. We’ll test ourselves over the famous Col de Turini which always features in the Monte Carlo Rally.
For the yoga participants there will be two daily sessions given by an accredited specialist. One on the beach and one inside the hotel plus a daily massage session. Plus there will be lots of time to explore the delights of Nice with its great shopping and culture.
On the daily cycle rides our support 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.
The accommodation package is two days on halfboard and two days on B&B allowing you the freedom to explore the excellent evening dinner options in Nice with your partner on two nights.
