Geneva has rarely been so well placed !
There are a full six stages with a start and/or finish within an hour’s drive.
Take a look at the green “X” below, and you’ll see that Geneva, Switzerland is right in the middle of things in 2016.
And you don’t need to sit idly by and watch. Watch the tour and then get on a bike !
This is what we propose:
July 17: Arrive in Geneva and do your bike fitting for our Alpine Tour.
July 18: Take a 90 minute train ride from Geneva to Switzerland’s capital city of Bern and watch the TDF cyclists finish their stage.
July 19: Enjoy the carnival atmosphere in Bern before taking a short trip to Chateau d’Oex or Saanenmoser to get a good spot to watch the pelotons pass on July 20th.
July 20: Be back in Geneva before 6pm to meet your fellow riders for drinks and supper before beginning our 2016 Alpine Tour.
We begin our riding on July 21st.
Although our tour across Switzerland does not have the same pace as the Tour de France, you will be covering 500 kilometers and ascending over 7,600 meters in your 8 days of cycling.
And the first two days of our tour will be following many of the same roads as the 2016 Tour de France.
Cost: 4,200 Chf (Double Occupancy)
Although this tour doesn’t include any of the Tour de France itinerary suggestions listed above, we’d be glad to help you with questions, reservations and make suggestions.
Keep in mind that we also run a less expensive “independent” version of all of our tours.
