Service

Cycling Ascents provides cycling holidays in the French Alps, based in Bourg D’Oisans. We offer bed and breakfast at the foot of six valleys which offers the choice of many different cycling routes.

There are many different rides possible from a quick loop round the valley (great for a warm up or if you just fancy a short ride then a coffee!)…. all the way to some monstrous alpine ascensions suitable for a Tour de France stage (who of course often visit this part of the French Alps). There are easily enough rides to keep even the most hardcore of roadies happy for over a week. Another advantage of being at the junction of a number of valleys is that the days ride always ends with a downhill!

Of course Alpe D’Huez is only two minutes ride away from our accommodation, and no cycling holiday in the French Alps would be complete without a chance to test yourself against the times of Marco Pantani, Lance Armstrong, or even Sheryl Crowe if you prefer!

The passes Col du Galibier, Col du Glandon & Croix de Fer are also within easy reach.

Not only will you have a great time biking in the Alps, getting to appreciate some wonderful scenery but you will likely go home fitter as well!

We offer guided riding (subject to availability) for no extra cost as part of the package - take advantage of our experience of living and riding in the area, and let us take you on routes to suit your ability. There are many amazing rides here that you may miss if you just go for the well known routes.

There are also a number of cycling events each year in or near to Bourg D’Oisans, including La Marmotte, Alpe D’Huzes, Granfondo Les Deux Alpes (formerly the Marco Pantani), and more.

Accommodation

The result of more than two years of blood, sweat and tears (luckily there wasn’t too much blood!), our purpose built modern Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Bourg d’Oisans is set in a stunning valley location under two kilometres outside of the town centre, and a short five minute ride to the base of Alpe d’Huez.

The large house (239 sq.m plus double garage) has a spacious lounge and dining area, plus 70sq.m outdoor deck with spa (giving you a great view of the mountains, of course!), plus UK TV, wifi / internet, and home cinema (projection onto 2.2m equivalent screen).

All bedrooms are ensuite, and there are three double / twin rooms available, as well as two larger family rooms which sleeps up to four. Card access doors (like a modern hotel) means you won’t be carrying bunches of keys around. All our beds are high quality, there is plenty of storage in each room, and our modern pellet boiler means that there will always be lots of hot water for a relaxing shower after a hard ride in the mountains.

Breakfast is usually a selection of home baked croissants & pain au chocolat, bio yoghurts (made in house), a range of cereals, muesli, & porridge, fresh bread or toast and home made jams as well as ham, cheese orange juice, tea and coffee. Our aim is to ensure that you are well fuelled and ready for the day!
