Ride like a pro in the French Alps this summer!
A family friendly week for everyone
Previous family weeks have proven that you don’t need to be an adult to ride up mountains. In fact they’ve had young riders aged 8 cycle up Tour de France mountain passes, with their 3 year old sister often in the support vehicle with her Mum to cheer on her brothers and Dad, stopping for picnics and ice cream along the way. The family week is a great place for cycling families of all ages to explore the mountains with expert guidance from our team and back up from our support vehicle. This means you can skip some of the busier roads and take you on a great exploration of the best the French Alps has to offer! Take a look at this video to give you a better idea:
Chris and the team at 45 Degrees North also run youth weeks for older kids and they’ve had riders out from Twickenham CC, Kingston Junior CC, Hillingdon Slipstreamers. Some of the riders from previous youth weeks have gone on to the British Cycling Performance Pathway with specialist coaches and an opportunity to take their cycling to the next level.
With the Tour de France and Criterium du Dauphine making regular local appearances, Morzine in the heart of the French Alps is an awesome place for young cyclists to hone their skills and move up to the next level in their cycling career. Its also a lot of fun for both young riders and parents.
Ride from their stunning new chalet in Morzine in the French Alps & set out to climb a series of epic Tour de France cols over the week. Chris’ professional team includes a support vehicle on the road to carry extra layers, water and snacks. They’ll also take you to picnic stops with a view & you can look forward to a hearty meal at the end of the day. There’s plenty of beautiful routes available so they can work out the best combination for each group.
