two wheels move the soul'
'two legs move the body,
Alps Extreme West

7 days, 1800km's

Italy, France, Switzerland

There is no place on earth that stirs a rider's soul more than the Alps. The combination of breathtaking scenery and mile after mile of twisting mountain passes, make it a 'must do' in every riders lifetime. This tour takes us east to west, starting with the French Alps  over the Passes of Lombarde and La Bonnette and on to Barcelonnette. Passing through Digne, we will see the famous lavender fields of Provence. The Col de L'Iseran sees us on the highest paved pass in the Alps before heading through Val d'Isere and into Italy. There's an opportunity to ride the gondola to the top of Mont Blanc and then ride to St Bernard, home of the famous St Bernard dog.  Crossing into Switzerland we ride the Rhone river valley and on to Andermatt. The final three days see us enjoying the unparalleled riding of the Gotthard, Neufenen and Grimsel passes before gradually making our way back south to Italy.
