Event Description

Ride the Tour du Mont Blanc and Some of the Most Iconic Tour de France Mountain Passes Around Annecy

July 12-20, 2017

The Alps have been the backdrop for some of the most scenic and exciting stages of the Tour de France, and now you can experience those same iconic routes during our Tour du Mont Blanc and Annecy Camp. Over the course of the nine-day camp, we’ll tackle over 200 miles and 26,000 feet of climbing during the Tour du Mont Blanc Gran Fondo then make our way to the charming Imperial Palace Hotel right on the crystal clear Lake Annecy. We’ll spend three days in Annecy exploring some of the greatest mountain passes from the Tour de France, enjoying the local cuisine, and relaxing in the “Pearl of the French Alps.”


Day 1We’ll meet you at the Geneva airport and shuttle about 75 minutes to our hotel perched over the Val dÂrly with a stunning view of the Aravis chain of mountains. We’ll build up the bikes and if time permits get out for a short ride before having dinner at the hotel in a warm mountain chalet.

Day 2: Thursday get out and ride, tune bikes, relax

Day 3: Friday morning ride, hearty lunch, register for Tour du Mont Blanc ride

Day 4 : Saturday Tour du Mont Blanc

A super early start to the day. We’ll have two vehicles on the course supporting the athletes with clothing, nutrition and hydration.

Day 5: Sunday is the day to be lazy as our only activity is to transfer from our mountain location down to the shores of Lake Annecy. A 90-minute drive with lunch along the lake upon arrival. A massage and perhaps a short spin are afternoon options.


Days 6 – 8: Over these three days the group will ride some of the most iconic passes that have been included in the Tour de France around Annecy, such as Col de Galibier and Alpe d’Huez.

Day 9:  Thursday after a breakfast as grand as your surroundings, it’s into our air-conditioned vans for the 45-minute shuttle back to Geneva airport where we’ll say ‘au revoir’… but not goodbye!
