Amazing cycling events in the Alps this summer
Wed June 08, 2016
It might come us a surprise for some of you powder fanatics, but there’s more to the mountains than just skiing. Our summer chalets in Alpe d’Huez, Morzine and Les Gets will soon be opening and there’s a whole host of activities going on throughout the summer months. Here’s just some of our top picks for those who swap skis for wheels in the summer months.
It’s probably best to start with the biggest of the summer events – the Tour de France. This historic event will be passing through Morzine on 23 July for the penultimate stage of the tour. Our chalets are located in the centre of town, so perfect for catching all the action.
For those of you looking to experience the thrill of the Tour de France route, you can join our MD Andy Sturt in taking on the Etape du Tour on 10th July. The 164km ride from Megève to Morzine will undoubtedly be a challenging event for even the most experienced riders.
Stay in our Morzine chalets, 7 nights Tour de France offer - half board from £799pp
Les Get Summer
For the first time ever, Les Gets will play host to the multi-competition, mountain biking event Crankworx, from 15-19 June. A host of world-class mountain bikers will be showing off their skills, and there’s also competitions open to the public. Expect plenty of new products, live music, photography and bike demos. Altitude Lodge is the ideal place to stay to experience this fantastic event.
We've still got rooms available if you fancy a summer breeak this month. Prices from £130 per room (based on two sharing) and includes half board catering.
Alpe d'Huez Summer
Or why not head over to our Alpe d’Huez chalets and experience the famous La Marmotte Cycling Race. On 2nd July, over 7000 cyclists will attempt this popular cyclo-sportive event. The route takes you over 170km and climbs 5000m, with the final ascent taking you round the notorious 21 bends to Alpe d’Huez.
