How we did it

Cyclist - - The Big Ride France -

TRAVEL

Cy­clist flew to Geneva air­port, home of some ex­ceed­ingly ex­pen­sive food (it is Switzer­land and it is an air­port), but at least cheap to get to, with prices from around £60 from ma­jor UK air­ports, and within a 90-minute drive of Al­bertville.

AC­COM­MO­DA­TION

We stayed at the Ho­tel Alpen Roc (rooms from around £90pn), cour­tesy of Bri­tish tour op­er­a­tor Peak Re­treats, which spe­cialises in French cy­cling hol­i­days, guided rides and very knowl­edge­able ad­vice. See peakre­treats.co.uk for more de­tails.

THANKS

We are once again in­debted to Cé­line Guiller­min and Na­dine Carle-edgar from the Savoie Mont Blanc tourist board, who put to­gether this trip and en­sured every lit­tle de­tail ran smoothly, on top of driv­ing our sup­port car and pay­ing €915 for our cof­fee. Cé­line says she even­tu­ally got €905.85 back.
