Etape du Tour 2016

Fancy riding the Queen stage of this year's Tour de France? On Sunday 10th July you get the chance to do just that...


Every year, 1000s of amatuer cyclists get the chance to test themselves on an identical course to the professionals. This year, the Etape du Tour covers stage 20 of the Tour de France, from Megeve to Morzine via the beautiful Col des Aravis, Colombiere, Ramaz and the fearsome Col de Joux Plane.  The event takes place on closed roads with superb support facilities - a real must for any cycling enthusiast. Register for the event here.


At Allez Alps we are delighted to offer accomodation packages for both the event itself and for training prior to the big day. We ride these roads regularly - the importance of local knowledge can't be underestimated in an event like the Etape. Why not join us in May or June and test the legs against the same cols you'll be conquering in July? From fully supported rides to self guided, with Allez Alps your training sessions really can can be bespoke...


Accommodation packages for May and June start from just £30 per person per night on a B&B basis - please do get in touch and we can tailor your stay to suit your needs.


Packages for the Etape weekend start from £50 per person per night, including transport from Morzine to the start town at Megeve.  Any questions? Cycling is our passion - get in touch and we'll happily talk things through.
