New Guided Tour planned for 2015: Alpine Route Tour

Inventing a new guided tour isn’t easy, but it is probably as fun as you imagine it:
A lot of cycling, staying over in nice hotels, trying restaurants and visiting local attractions.
Then we run the tour and tweak everything again year after year until we get it nearly perfect.

We’ve been running the Challenge Tour for 10 years now.
The Lite Tour has been going on 7 years and this will be the 4th year for our Jura Tour.
We now have the time to begin developing a new tour: The Alpine Panorama tour.


We’ll be doing a lot of reconnaissance this summer and fall to nail down the overnight spots, but the itinerary will be based on National Route #4.
You can find a full profile chart of that route at this link.

The inaugural tour is scheduled to take place early August 2015 and everyone will be riding new 2015 carbon road bikes.
Stay tuned !
