    WOMEN'S WEEK

    French Alps

    26 August - 2 September 2017

    Women’s Week is for female riders looking to introduce themselves to, or improve their fitness at altitude. The 2016 edition was a huge success and we are really looking forward to continuing to build upon that trip.

    It’s perfect for those new to riding in the mountains as we’ll be spending time working on various skills such as descending and cornering, as well as looking at choosing the correct clothing to carry, and which food to eat when riding in a mountain environment.

    There will be 6 days of cycling in the big mountains and the first day is an gentler day to ease you into the week. 

    We stay at a gorgeous chalet in the mountains, with our own private chefs! There is also a national park next door, for those wanting to explore post riding. This year we are also offering Pilates on two of the days, to stretch out the body and legs.

    For this trip, we have partnered with the experienced cycling tour company 1330 Road Cycling. Graeme and team ran this trip for us in 2016 and it was an incredible holiday.

    This is our Founder, Alicia's, favourite trip of the year and she will be coming along again in 2017!

    Dates: Saturday 26th August to Saturday 2nd of September (6 nights, 7 days)

    Price: £899 (all full board, excludes flights)
