Freiburg-Nice

Long-distance ride through Black Forest, Jura, Alps – 17/08-26/08/2018

To cycle the Route des Grandes Alpes, that's the once-in-a-lifetime dream of every cyclist. The grande traversée along the French Alps, from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean. But that's not enough for us! We've added another couple of stages and begin the ride to the Med in Freiburg, the picturesque university town in the Breisgau, in the southwest of Germany. As a result, not only can you conquer the French Alps and famous monuments such as the Iséran, Galibier und Bonette, but also discover the Black Forest and the Swiss Jura. To crown things off, you experience a real summit finish at 2473 m – on the Col du Grand Saint Bernard.

Our Tour ends with a dip in the Mediterranean, in Nice, where the Maritime Alps meet the sea, and our hotel is right on the beach, on the famous Promenade des Anglais.

Ride to the Mediterranean with us!
