Road Cycling

Road cycling is our passion and Chalet Everest is the perfect base for your alpine cycling experience in the French Alps, the spiritual home of cycling. 

We offer supported bespoke guided rides** and self-guided rides or a combination of the two, we encourage you to contact us in advance to prepare the perfect itinerary. 

With our guided rides** you will get vehicle support and an experienced local guide to ensure you get the best riding the region has to offer at your own pace. We can take you over the cols made famous by the Tour de France such as the Col de Madeleine, Col de Galibier and the switchbacks of the popular newcomer Lacets de Montvernier or more intimate local rides taking in the climbs to Champagny and Pralognon. Coffee stops aren’t obligatory but are recommended! 

If you like doing your own thing we are happy to help you plan your own routes and can provide gpx files for download to compatible computers for many popular routes. If the start is not accessible from the chalet we provide a transfer service** to get you to a convenient start point and can collect you from an agreed pick up point at the end of your ride. We also provide a recovery service if you get into any difficulty or the weather takes a turn for the worse*. 

The Tour de France usually spends several days in the area so if you are visiting while the race is passing through we can combine riding the Cols the pros ride with rides out to watch the local stages. 

We have a range of High 5 and SIS Sports Nutrition available to purchase.

** Cycle guiding and support transport are at extra cost, please contact us for suggested itineraries, level of support required and we will tailor a quote to your specific requirements**
