About Us

Biking Les Alps is a small company offering a select number of bicycle tours each year. Our rides are designed for the client who enjoys to, get out and ride, as often as possible. You do not need to be a racer, just someone who has a reasonable level of fitness and enjoys the company of like minded people.

We have chosen to offer camping tours as opposed to hotels. This makes for a more social atmosphere and allows us to offer a great holiday without being expensive. All meals are prepared in our camp kitchen and are often a highlight of the day.

A Serious Cyclist?? Someone who enjoys riding, has their own bike and gets out regularly. You do not need to be a hammerhead racer to join us. If you find you have bitten off more than you can chew our crew will help. Just get out there and have fun with like minded people.

The European Alps offer some of the best and most challenging cycling around. With the scenery changing from the valley floor to the tops of the passes, small villages where time has stood still to large Alpine homes with their flower boxes brimming with color. There is always something to keep you interested as you do each climb.
