Guided Cycling at Chalet Brio

We're proud to offer fully guided cycling holidays using Chalet Brio as a place to relax, recharge and enjoy great meals. Using our local knowledge we have tailor made routes which take in Tour de France classics such as the Col de Colombiere, Col de Ramaz and the formidable Col de Joux Plane. With different difficulty options and places for non riders we have something for everyone.

2019 Guided Cycling Availability

For the 2019 season we have four weeks available. Deliberately timed at the beginning and end of the summer season, they can either be used as a training platform before the summer or as a last flyaway trip before the days shorten.

The GrandFondo special includes entrance to the Morzine GrandFondo classic as day one of the holiday. The difficulty level for each week is determined by the group with the requirement that every rider is at the same level.

*Places are available for non riders with prices based on sharing a room with a participating rider
