The full-service “Tour d’Azur”

Combine guided rides with accommodation in Beaulieu-sur-mer between Nice and Monaco, or in Nice. With so much variety on the doorstep, there is no need to move from one place to the next each day; here you can ride every day for a month on different roads!

We organise everything for you: airport transfers, cyclist-friendly B&B accommodation in Beaulieu-sur-mer or Nice, “in the know” itineraries combining classic climbs with little-known gems, an experienced guide to lead you along the quietest and most beautiful roads, pointing out the places offering the best coffee and pastries and where to top up your water, all wrapped up with seamless logistics so you can relax and focus on getting the most out of your trip.

Settle in, relax, and enjoy the cycling!

You can come as a lone cyclist joining a mixed group, or, with just 4 or more people in your group we can create a completely exclusive, private and bespoke experience with an itinerary specific to the objectives and ability of your group.

All our trips are designed to enable your group to make the most of your time here:

  • Take an early flight from any airport in Europe and you can be in Nice before Midday. With a short 30-minute transfer, we can get a full afternoon ride in on the first day.
  • Take an evening flight from Nice on your departure day and you can enjoy a full day’s ride.
  • You choose which days and what time to arrive and depart, so you can ensure your trip fits in with work or family plans, or take advantage of the cheapest flights.

At the heart of all our trips is the “Tour d’Azur”. This is not a fixed itinerary, but a number of days riding from Beaulieu or Nice crafted bespoke for each individual group of 4+ people based on the number of days in your trip, and the distance and climbing your group wishes to do. Whether you are here for a long weekend, or a week or more, we will shape your Tour d’Azur to capture the key cols and descents, and build in any events in which you are participating.
