The bike is the perfect vehicle for exploring the World! Not so fast that everything flies by in a blur, not so slow that you never get anywhere. Our trips are build around a “team camp” formula, meaning we’ll have a central house with lots of good cooking from local chefs and enough riding that you won’t be able to gain weight!
We are starting to plan our 2019 return trip to the Ronde van Vlanderen and Paris Roubaix classics. If you like racing you’ll love Flanders and Roubaix! Quintessential Spring monuments held in the heart of the cycling World. You have ride options that allow you to knock off more than 500 miles in our 10 days, including both sportives and lots of other famous roads and climbs. Or you can choose a slightly less ambitious plan that suits your goals and pacing! Either way we’ll enjoy chef prepared meals and select restaurants from our rental house in Kortrijk, Belgium.
2019 French Alps
Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime? The Alps ARE cycling. Big climbs over famous roads are really just the starting point for our trip. Yes, we’ve got options like the Col de la Croix de Fer (29.5Km, 1522m elevation gain averaging 5.1%), the Col du Galibier (34.8Km 2120m elevation gain averaging 6.1% if you include the Col du Telegraphe) and Europe’s highest pass the Col de L’Iseran (32Km, 1250m elevation gain averaging 7%), but some of the best roads are the lesser known ones like the 40-switchback Col du Mollard (19Km, 1100m elevation gain averaging 8%) or the amazing Col du Sabot (15Km, 1200m elevation gain averaging 8%) and a slew of others! We’ll run a combination of rental houses and hotels in this 10 day trip. Full detail coming in September!
2018 Taiwan KOM
Are you ready for a great challenge? The Taiwan KOM, a 100Km ride starting at the Ocean and rolling up the incredible Taroko Gorge and Wuling Summit, finishing at over 10,000 feet! Out typical 10 day trip is likely north of 500 miles, however given the difficulty of the Taiwan KOM we’re aiming for more on the 300-350 side. Don’t worry, we’ve got amazing experiences aplenty for you…more info soon!
