DISCOVER THE GRAND COLS

in your custom group cycling tour

Nothing is more beautiful than suffering and enjoying with your cycling friends in the mountains and exploring the Grand Cols together that you know from the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta d’Espana! Do you, like us, have a passion for cycling in the high mountains and are you looking for a next level challenge that fits your capabilities? We organise custom group cycling tours for cyclists like you!

Be inspired by us and challenge us to organise the cycling tour of your dreams. You determine the destination, the number of stages and the distance. A col more or less? An extra day of rest? Extra chic hotels? No problem! We organise the cycling tour that fully meets the wishes of your group, for an acceptable price.

‘If you are a friend of the mountain, the mountain becomes a friend of yours. At the foot of a mountain I always say: “Gosh, what a beautiful mountain you are.’

Bram Tankink, Dagblad Metro, 2006
