16,000m of Climbing

With over 16,000m of elevation across 6 days of riding, the Alpine Escape is deliberately tough. It's designed to push your body to it's limits, but in a social style. Our Escapes are not races, they're social trips designed for those who want to experience the challenges of back to back days in the high mountains.

With a maximum of 12 guests per trip, and just 2 trips per year, our Alpine Escapes are designed to allow us all to make new friendships on the road with riders from all over the world. Our Escapes are an adventue, not a race. Ride in a social style and make life-long memories.

Alpine Recovery

Stay in our Alpine guesthouse near Bourg St. Maurice. Our hosts Kerry and Serge prepare daily continental breakfasts to fuel each big day of riding. At dinner, you'll enjoy 3 course dinners made with locally sourced fine ingredients. Wine, beer and soft drinks are all included. Relax in the outdoor hot tub or recover in the infra-red sauna.

Fully Supported

As well as ride guides from Band of Climbers, you can enjoy the luxury of van support at all times. We'll carry your spare kit so you don't need to. Mechanical support is on hand with tools at all times, plus if you need to take a break, jump in the van for a rest and catch the group.

    Before coming to this Alpine Escape, I expected a high level of support, lodging, meals, rides... I was truly amazed, blown away, how Band of Climbers team exceeded these expectations in every way! Truly memorable experience, best cycling vacation I've enjoyed so far!

    This was my first ever Band Of Climbers experience and it certainly did not disappoint... from start to finish, everything you could possibly wish was included, so all you had to do was turn the pedals. This trip turned into an emotional life changing experience and one which I was happy to share with the new friends I have made, as a result.

    The best week on a bike I’ve ever had! The rides, scenery, accommodation and support crew were all first class and the friendships made within the group will be long lasting.
