The Climbs

Alpine Cadence : Supported rides for cyclists in the Alps
Alpine Cadence is based near to Bourg St Maurice in the Tarentaise valley. From our chalet base we have a fantastic selection of famous climbs that can be incorporated into our guided rides. For riders who are unfamiliar with Alpine riding the main things to know about the climbs are that they are very long but not necessarily as steep as one might expect. The toughness of them comes down to how long they take and how unrelenting they can be. Climbs out here can take even the strongest riders in excess of 2 hours to negotiate, pacing yourself and finding a sustainable rhythm are the keys.

The adjacent pages describe in detail all the major climbs that we incorporate on our trips.
