aix-les-bains to nice june 17th - 21st 2015

37 intrepid cyclists took on an exceptionally tough ride

Set amongst the beautiful scenery of the high Alps, the ride included some of the most famous climbs in the world….The Galibier, Izoard, Vars and Bonette (the highest paved through route in the Alps!) were all on the itinerary, as were the beautiful Lac du Bourget and welcoming Mediterranean Sea! Just a few weeks later, the pro’s followed in their wheel tracks as the Tour de France passed through and attempted the same climbs.

 

The 100km descent on the last day more than made up for the 9000+ metres of climbing endured by the cyclists who were raising funds for two amazing charities: Dan’s Trust and The Fearless Foundation.
