FRANCE CYCLING CAMP 2019
The France Cycling Camp in 2019 will take you on the roads of the Tour de France, and you will ride 3 days on and around the Grand Colombier, through traffic light road with breathtaking sceneries, whilst enjoying French culture at its finest. The Bugey region is an undiscovered gem of a region, with amazing cycling opportunities that will challenge the best of riders.
Staying in a modernly decorated villa, we will also host nutrition and strength training workshops. This cycling camp is the perfect way to kickstart your season, and get ready for your summer event! Ride on the same roads as the Tour de France, and train like a pro on the famous Lacets du Grand Colombier.
If some of the tours appear too difficult, we have options to “cut” the stages shorter. On the flat sections, it’s very important we ride as a group. On the climbs, everybody goes at their own pace. The first ones at the top can cycle back down to fetch the last ones!
DAY 1 : LE BUGEY
DAY 2 : LAKE TO SKY
The Queen stage brings us to the the Lac du Lit du Roi before riding on the Via Rhôna through the picturesque town of Chanaz, and climbing over to the other side where we will ride along the Lac du Bourget, to the Abbaye de Hautecombe, a 12th century Abbey. We then ride along the lake before climbing the most famous ascent of the Grand Colombier, via Culoz, and experience the beautiful laces of the Grand Colombier, with breathtaking views of the Lac du Bourget and the Mont Blanc.
DAY 3 : LA BICHE ET LE GRAND COLOMBIER
The Grand Colombier will have no more secrets for you ! There are many options to “cut” the stage shorter if this is too difficult.
Places of interest : Col de la Biche, Rhône valley, Le Grand Colombier, Champagne-en-Valromey, Culoz

FRANCE CYCLING CAMP PREVIEW
I highly recommend Jura Sports and Thierry as a fab coach. I participated to the Bugey training weekend beginning June. We had 3 fantastic riding days, custom made to our prep to the upcoming Etape du Tour in July. Thierry did a perfect job in putting a program together adjusted to the level of each member of the group. Its not just about the ride, its also about the preparation to get there through personalized training and nutrition programs. the accommodation was great, the food was great, the group was great and Thierry managed to hold the whole thing together in a fantastic way. I am way fitter now than I have been and feel as ready as can be for the upcoming race! Thanks Thierry
