A team of cycling coaches

We are a team of professionally-qualified cycling coaches. We live to cycle in the mountains, and we love introducing people to our favourite climbs and sharing our tips for better performance.

Our raison d’être is to help our guests to become better cyclists: faster, safer, more competitive.

We do not employ guides or unqualified “ride captains”. All our team members are formally certified as cycling coaches. They are also highly experienced competitors. Silas was an international triathlete; Olivier has won several sportives in France; Yannick was a successful Elite rider on the verge of turning professional, Stéphane competed at the highest amateur levels.

Equally important, they are all lovely people who like nothing better than to share their knowledge and help other people reach the next level. If you join one of our camps, you will get to know them very well after a week of cycling and sharing drinks, meals and laughter together!
