We began CycleVentoux because we love Europe, the outdoors, good food and seemingly endless miles of fantastic roads to explore. The lore of cycling is deep here, home to the great roads of the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and more than a century of cycling’s racing history and culture. Europeans live and breathe the bike and we want to expand your own passion by showing you Europe on two wheels.
Just mention the word "Alps" to someone and what comes to mind? Skiing! - alpininism - alpine huts, hot chocolate, "gemütlichkeit" – German for cosiness, contentment, comfort and relaxation after a hard day hitting the slopes! – and, of course spectacular scenery!
The arc of the Alps begins at the Mediterranean border between France and Italy. The mountains rise to the Italian peaks of Mon Viso and Gran Paradiso, continue to the Mont Blanc massif across the roof of Europe to the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, and on into the Arlberg, Tirol and across Austria. Throughout lies some of the most iconic ski terrain in the world.
We've spent years exploring and touring on foot in the summer and by skis in the winter to discover the people, places and terrain that provide the ultimate Alpine experience, whether it be a complete wilderness ski challenge such as the famed Haute Route or a week of guided luxury spa and ski vacation in Bormio.
