Chalet Grand Cru: Chamonix

Cycle Chamonix and stay at www.chaletgrandcru.com


Chamonix in summer is undeniably, mind-blowingly, dramatically, stunning. At the Border of France, Italy and Switzerland, Chamonix is truly unique- located deep in the valley, surrounded by some of Europe’s most spectacular peaks and some of the most impressive alpine roads- perfect for cycling. It has become a haven for skiers, climbers, walkers, mountain bikers and road cyclists alike, all looking to experience their sport in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.

Road Biking

Chamonix provides the perfect spot to explore some of the most spectacular road cycling around, including nearby ‘must have’ Cols such as Columbiere, St Bernard and Galibier.

There are few places in the world to match the scale of the climbs and descents available in the valley.

For the less ‘energetic’ cyclists the valley floor offers a beautiful and relaxed area to explore the towns and villages that lie along it.

The Tour de France passes through near by Avoriaz and Morzine making Chamonix an ideal base to watch these stages of the race. (2010 dates: stages 8-10, from the 11th-15th July)

Mountain Biking

There are trails to suit all levels of ability and for the experienced rider there is a wealth of high energy, technical and steep riding.

The valley is covered with a network of great, well maintained tracks. There are also 6 separate lift systems and Chamonix boasts a rideable vertical range of over 2000 metres.
