If you love cycling, you’ll love France Camp.  If you love climbing and descending – you’ll love France Camp even more.

Each day France Camp features a major climb (or two) in the French alpes.  You don’t have to be a climbing specialist to participate in France Camp, but you do have to enjoy climbing.

If you marginally enjoy climbing, remember that what goes up, must come down!  France Camp descents are just as epic, or more so, than the climbs.

Food is also a huge part of France Camp.  Chefs Michael and Alex prepare ample portions of fresh food, daily.  Food and wine comes from the region, and many of the vegetables come from the Chalet garden.

Finally, friendship and comradery are focal points of France Camp.  You will leave with lasting friendships and priceless memories.

The Tour de France route will be announced Wednesday, Oct. 22, and the route will most likely feature our home-climb of the mystical l’alpe d’Huez.  This means that there will be at least two options for up close and personal TdF viewing during Week 2 of France Camp.
