The Switzerland – World Champs 2020 Tour features as a unique highlight to finish our European season for 2020.  This is the ultimate combination for any cycle racing enthusiast.  We will start the tour by showcasing our favourite rides in the area surrounding Lake Annecy.  Our transfer towards Switzerland incorporates two nights in stunning Morzine and then to Leysin, above Aigle.  We’ll then be roadside to watch the World Championship Road Racing action unfold.

The World Championships features a week of Time Trials and Road Races across Men, Women, Junior and U23 categories.  We will select key viewing Road Race days and times to ensure the best combination of riding our own bikes and watching the racing action.

Basically, we are more spoilt for choice than ever, with off-the-chart rides and exciting bike racing on tap!

This will be an ultimate dream cycling tour.

Day 1 – 4

We start with a pick up from Geneva Airport, Switzerland and transfer to our first base for this tour in the Haute Savoie area above Lake Annecy.  We will spend the first four days in this spectacular corner of France taking in our favourite rides in the area.  These will include the famous cycle paths around Lake Annecy and the Cols that give the best views in the area.  Col des Aravis, Col de la Croix Fry, Col de Saisies and Cormet de Roselend feature in this itinerary.

Day 5 – 6

We’ll start our transfer (or pilgrimage) towards Switzerland with a ride over Col de la Colombiere and through Les Gets to the alpine playground town of Morzine. We will spend the next two nights here checking out some of the incredible terrain that has set this area up as a mountain bikers haven.  On the door step is Col de Joux Plan, a climb that has something of a chequered history in cycling – a Floyd Landis “solo victory”, a 33 minute Pantani climb, a climb that cracked Lance Armstrong.  It worth the sweat just to emerge yourself in the history of it’s tarmac.

Day 7

Swiss chocolate – here we come.  We ride our transfer from Morzine to Aigle, Switzerland – the home of the UCI and the 2020 World Champs. The final part of today’s ride takes us up to Leysin, perched on the mountainside above Aigle.  This is our base for the next six nights.

Day 8 – 12

This is five days of cycling nirvana!  The incredible climbs of the Aigle area are on our doorstep.  World Championship road racing is on our doorstep. Swiss chocolate is on our doorstep. Can we just freeze time and live these moments forever?  We will customise our riding itinerary for these days based on the timings of the road races (and our Kiwi cheerleading exploits).  One thing is for sure – these five days will give lifetime memories of why we love this sport.

Day 13

We finish this tour back where we started – our final transfer is to Geneva Airport.
