Every summer a group of up to 12 TCC riders head out to the French Alps for a week of cycling in the sunshine, picnics in the mountains and general club antics.
Club and women’s team cycling coach Chris and his team provide healthy, wholesome meals in a friendly, down to earth chalet with a well stocked honesty bar, a free sports massage, full support vehicle to carry extra layers, pass bottles and give you an excuse to stop for a home made energy bar!
Catch a flight to Geneva, hop on a minibus and transfer to our chalet in just over an hour. Local shop Imperial Cycles in Isleworth supply our bikes every year so we’ll have some brand new Scott Addict 10 road bikes with 11 speed Ultegra groupsets and the perfect gear setup for any mountain – yours to rent for €200 for the week (we’ll even set it up to your dimensions).
Club member Sanjay is supplying the sports nutrition this year too and we can’t wait to see his new branding. The test bars were delicious!
We’re also surrounded by some of the best mountain biking trails in the world, with Crankworx in nearby Les Gets kicking off the season in June, so feel free to bring out more than one bike! Our MTB rep Sol was out shredding the trails with Mark last year and loved it.
So join us if you can for a cycling week in the French Alps, riding over Tour de France climbs, into stunning valleys to cafes with over 50 flavours of ice cream. We’ll take you to the best local climbs and back street secret spots, have a BBQ on the edge of a stunning lake as the sun goes down and if you’ve still got some energy there’s always the luge!
Get in touch to save your space on this year’s TCC week in the French Alps, 30th June to 7th July.
