Friday 14th July – First Riding Day

Our location in Morzine is excellent for access to some beautiful mountain passes. Today we will provide a supported, guided ride that takes in the final climbs of tomorrow’s stage; the Col de Ramaz and the Col de Joux Plane. There is a shorter option to ride just the Joux Plane. The climbs will already be buzzing with fans camping out by the roadside, so there will be plenty of encouragement to help you get over this Hors Categorie climb.

Evening meal at the hotel.

Today we’re in for a fantastic treat. The finish of today’s stage is in Morzine so we’re excellently located to see today’s finish.

In the morning we will a supported, guided ride in the Morzine area ahead of the stage finish. We expect the finish to be at about 16.30/ 17.00 today.

Saturday 15th July – Stage 14 – Annemasse > Morzine Les Portes Du Soleil – Mountain stage

Stage 14 of the 2023 Tour de France will be the 16th time that the Tour de France finishes in Morzine. The start is in Geneva’s commuter town on the French side of the border; Annemasse.

After breakfast today we will ride a short distance up the road to the neighbouring village of Les Gets, where we will soak up the atmosphere of the race village ahead of today’s stage. After the riders get on their way, we will ride the Col de Romme & Col de la Colombière. These climbs regularly feature in the Tour as a back-to-back challenge in mountain stages.

Sunday 16th July – Stage 15 – Les Gets > Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc – Mountain stage

Today’s stage of the Tour de France is a tough mountain stage.

After an easy first 30 kilometres, today’s stage sees a lot of climbing and descending throughout the day. There are 4 main climbs today. The Col de la Forclaz de Montmin (7.2 kilometres at 7.3%), Col de la Croix Fry (11.3 kilometres at 7%) and its extension Col des Aravis), and the climb to Saint Gervais.

Evening meal will be in the hotel.

 Monday 17th July – Rest Day 

Today the Tour de France will take a well-deserved rest day as they have 3 consecutive mountains stages to follow.

Our location in Morzine is ideal for the rest day of the Tour de France. We will still go for a ride today, but it won’t be too challenging, so you will have time to explore the beautiful Alpine setting.

Evening meal at the hotel.

Today we will ride to the route of today’s stage to watch the riders tackle the time trial.

Tuesday 18th July – Stage 16 – Passy > Combloux – Individual time-trial

The 22-kilometre time trial between Passy and Combloux takes in the short and sharp Côte de Domancy before finishing in Combloux. The course is like the one in 2016 between Sallanches and Megève.

After breakfast we will start our ride from the hotel. We will make our way to Passy to see the early riders set off, and maybe even catch a glimpse of some of the later riders warming up. We will then ride over to the climb that the riders will take to complete their Time Trial, the Cote de Domancy.

Today we will provide transport to watch the stage alongside the opportunity to ride some of the stage and to watch the riders as they tackle the stage. The Col de la Loze made its tour debut in 2020 and immediately caught the attention of the cycling public. This traffic free bike path is a brutal challenge for any cyclist, whether a pro or an amateur.

Wednesday 19th July – Stage 17 – Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc > Courchevel – Mountain stage

First on the menu today is the Col des Saisies, which is a 13km climb at 5.3% average. From Beaufort the Cormet de Roselend is 19.9 kilometres long and averages 6%. After a long descent the duo of Côte de Longefoy and Notre-Dame-du-Pré are relatively easy. After Moutiers the real fun starts. The climb to the Col de la Loze is nearly 30km long. It starts easy with the climb up to Meribel but they rise to over 10% and the climb is very irregular. After the descent into Courchevel, the last 600 metres to the Altiport is tough at 10.8%.

Evening meal at the hotel

As we bid you farewell, we will offer one airport transfer to Geneva airport today. our transfer departs just after breakfast at 09.00 for flights departing after 13.00.
