Ascents are short four-day getaways to climb an iconic mountain, col or cycling town. From Mont Ventoux to the Passo dello Stelvio and the Col du Tourmalet, among others, each of these passes has seen near-mythical endeavours by the world’s best racers, and climbing them yourself will bring you closer to the sport.

FAQ

What kind of assistance can riders expect on the road?

When you’re riding you’ll always have at least one ride guide on the road with the group (on Randonnées and Retreats there will be high guide-to-guest ratios, while on Raids, for example, there will be fewer guides). There will also be a mechanic with a full tool kit and spare parts not far away – usually in a support car behind the group. Your guides and mechanics will be able to help you out with ride food and drink, as well as local knowledge, first aid, a morale-boosting chat and – if necessary – a hand to push you up the hill if you’ve run out of energy. They’ll do everything they can to keep you and your bike on the road but, if for any reason you can’t make it to the end, they’ll always make sure there’s a seat in a vehicle so you get safely home.

Are there any off-the-bike activities?

At our Retreats we will often schedule local tours, visits, wine tastings or talks, depending on the location and the season. On all but the toughest point-to-point trips – namely the Cent Cols Challenges and Randonnées – there will be time most days to relax before dinner at your evening’s destination, but that time is unstructured. Our accommodation is often in charming villages, and many of the hotels have swimming pools.
