Cycling is the new golf!

Don’t miss this opportunity of being on the Côte d’Azur to get some riding in.

Individuals can join guided rides every day of MIPIM – just bring your cycling kit and shoes and we’ll take care of everything else: a full-carbon road bike, your choice of pedals, and helmet.

We’ll show you the best roads local to Cannes: stunning coast roads with rugged coves and “calanques” and characterised by red volcanic rock, or into the hills of the Esterel with plunging ravines and oak forests.

If your company wants to provide some memorable hospitality for clients and colleagues, then we can provide a whole package:

- provision of bikes and guides

- route planning

- logistics and event management

For group rides, we ride together on the flat, and then everyone rides at their own pace up the climbs, regrouping at the top.  Depending on group size, we can offer route options varying in length and intensity.

Typically seamless logistics…everything falls into place effortlessly so you really can just focus on enjoying the adventure and relaxing in great company…

La Primavera - Milan-San Remo - the "sprinters classic"

Friday 20 to Monday 23 March – 4 days, 3 nights

Combine early season riding in the sunshine with the chance to watch the professionals at the finish of the longest of the single-day classics, La Primavera Milan-San Remo.

At 298km Milan-San Remo is known as the “sprinters’ classic”, although there have been many famous escapes on the Poggio (150m of height gain over its 4km length) which have spoiled the day for the sprinters.

We cycle along the coast to San Remo and you have the choice of watching on the Poggio, or down in the town as they approach the finish.

But it’s not just about watching the pros…this trip is about getting in some great early season riding in the sunshine!

Depending on your arrival time, you will be met at Nice Airport for the transfer to your hotel. Arrive in the morning, and join an afternoon group ride, exploring the coast road and one or two of the local climbs.

On Saturday, join a group ride; given the Italian flavour of this long weekend, we tackle two of the best local climbs in France before stunning descent to Breil-sur-Roya. From there we follow a narrow gorge before crossing into Italy and descending steadily to the coast at Ventimiglia and then returning to France along the coast road via Monaco.

On Sunday we ride along the coast to San Remo to watch the race, with the option of exploring more of the Ligurian terrain including the Colle Langan, Monte Ceppo and Bajardo.

On Monday there will be the opportunity for a final group ride before the transfer back to Nice airport.

Sportive - the Granfondo Golfe de Saint Tropez

Thursday 9 to Monday 13 April – 5 days, 4 nights

In April, the Côte d’Azur springs into life, and what better way to experience it than by including an early-season sportive as part of a 5-day trip.

The Granfondo Golfe de Saint Tropez offers 3 routes, the longest of which is a challenging 179km with 2500m of climbing starting in Saint Tropez and describing an arc through the Massif des Maures, but if that sounds like a bit too much, there are two shorter route options.

Arrive Thursday 9 April, transfer to your hotel, and join an afternoon ride. On Friday, there is a full-day ride taking in 3 of the iconic local climbs: the Col d’Eze, the Col de la Madone and the Col de Braus.

On Saturday we explore the beautiful Massif de l’Esterel to the west of Cannes – a stunning stretch of coastline with rugged coves and “calanques”, and up into the hills defined by plunging ravines and oak forests. From there, we drive to Saint Tropez to sign on for the sportive, and stay locally overnight.

The sportive starts on the Sunday morning at a very civilised 08h00, and having regrouped at the finish, we drive back to base.

We have time for a final ride on the Monday before your transfer to the airport and your return home.
