Official Etape du Tour Morzine Training Camp 2016

May 12th - 17th 2016

Join us in May 2016 for our 2016 Etape du Tour cycling preparation and training camp based in the Alpine town of Morzine. Easily accessible from Geneva airport. During these 4 days all rides will be aimed at preparing you for the 2016 Etape du Tour or any other summer sportive such as La Marmotte. All levels of cyclist participating in the Etape du Tour will be accommodated and we will have groups for racing cyclists chasing a fast time and cyclo-sportive riders wanting to beat the broom wagon.
 Please note that our cycling training camps are about clocking up some miles in a great location with some great company. We will not bore you with class room style seminars or lectures. It’s about riding Alpine Cols and enjoying the company of other cyclists.
We also run training camps in Costa Blanca, Spain and Tenerife. All our camps are ideal for preparing for the Etape du Tour.

Our staff and service:
Our Cycling Training Camps are managed by experienced cyclo-sportive rider and coach Ed Nicoll. Read more about Ed here. The camp is guided by experienced cyclists.
