Test your Limits in the French Alps

Starting in the Mont Blanc region you will ride south for six days, until you reach Nice, on the Mediterranean Sea. Six days, 550kms riding the alpine passes the pros face every year offers a challenge like no other. Riding in the French Alps will test your abilities as a rider.

Supported Tour de France Style

We use support cars carrying spare parts, drinking water, and food. Martin, will also be riding with you passing on coaching advice and knowledge.

We want to keep you on the road as much as possible.

Every hotel provides secure bike storage. Our logistic mastery stretches to providing you with porridge in the morning.

Experience the Spectacular and the Beautiful

Riding the "Route des Grandes Alpes" is an experience which immerses you in the spectacular awe inspiring beauty of the French Alps. It is hard to describe the feeling as you ride higher and higher into the mountains. It is simply something you have to do.

Ride Together, Eat Together

We ride together, we eat together, and camaraderie forms. Our guests tell us they make new long lasting friendships on our tours. If you are wondering if you can enjoy riding Geneva to Nice if you're travelling alone, the answer is yes.

Dear Sportactive team,

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I could take up such a challenge that is Geneva Nice. I would like thank you all, Flora, Martin and Thierry for your incredible support and professionalism.

I doubted myself as to whether or not I had the legs for this. I figured that if you had faith in me I should also.

Thank you for a wonderful week that I will never forget.

Guylaine Letendre - Quebec - Canada - Wonderful and challenging Geneva Nice


This was my sixth trip with Sportactive, the support they give is, as always, superb.

Advice, technical assistance, pacing (very important on long climbs), food, hotels are provided in a personalised and thoughtful, ’sympa' way.

Everyone gets to ride at their best and at the pace they prefer. I was very lucky again this year to be in the presence of other experienced, well-prepared cyclists.

We had fun on the road and over the nourishing French cuisine in the evenings.
