Town:

One of the oldest mountain resorts in the world, Chamonix has a history steeped in mountaineering, extreme skiing and climbing. It is located along in a long valley surrounded by arguably some of the most stunning mountain scenery in the world. Whilst sitting in one of the many popular bars and restaurants that spill out onto the streets in the summer, you have the impression that you can almost reach out and touch the glaciers that cling to the mountain peaks.

The Chamonix valley comprises of the actual town of Chamonix at the centre, with a number of smaller villages and hamlets, such as Les Houches, Argentière, Le Praz and Montroc and La Tour, each with their own individual charm and appeal. The town benefits from unbeatable access with Geneva airport under an hour away and a motorway that comes all the way to the resort. The ease of access has helped the popularity of the area as a holiday destination, in particular for weekend breaks.

So not only do you have the advantage of day trips to mountain passes made famous by the Tour du France, such as the Le col des Aravis or the Col de la Colombière, but also rides featuring in by both the Giro d’Italia and the Tour du Suisse such as the Col du Grand and Petit St Bernard.

Events:

Time Megeve Mont Blanc Cyclosportive - This Cyclosportive that takes place in early June and attracts around 2000 competitors. Its starts in the valley town of Sallanches and is raced over three different courses, taking in the Col de la Colombiere, Col des Aravis and the col des Saisies. The race finish in Chamonix’s neighboring town of Megève, with the longest course being 140km and totaling 4810meters in climbing, exactly the height of Mont Blanc.

Thanks to its timing in June, the sportive provides the prefect training event for those looking to take on the Etape du Tour or the Marmotte, later in the year. Thanks also to the design of the three different race length, those not reaching selected timing points along the way can be directed onto shorter versions of the course and still end up at the ultimate finish line in Megève.

Tour du Mont Blanc MTB - Departing From Chamonix in France this high altitude tour passes through Swizerland and on to Italy and takes in some of the most spectacular scenery in the Alpes. Not for the faint hearted this tour takes advantage of a number of ski lifts and gondola, but also requires a dedicated amount of peddling, pushing and carrying your bikes. However the pain is worth it as you will access some of the Alpes greatest and remotest siingle track. During the tour you will ride through 7 different valleys and be witness to stunning glaciers, flower carpet meadows and hundreds of different peaks. 

Tour du Mont Blanc Road - This event takes place around the third week in July and is a grueling 330km with 8000meters of climbing and can be raced solo, or as part of a 2-person relay team. It starts and finishes in the resort village of Les Saisies and circumnavigates the Mont Blanc Massive in a clockwise direction passing over the Col des Montets, Col de La Forclaz, Col du Grand and Petit St-Bernard and the Cormet de Roselend.‚Äč
