Aravis Bike Tour

Mountain preparation course… your own circuit … your own event!

Not only is this a cycling event, it is above all a real human adventure, designed to encourage meetings, exchanges and sharing between cyclists of all ages and backgrounds.
The village of La Giettaz, the starting point of this event, nestled at the foot of the Aravis Pass, is a cyclist’s paradise with the renowned Grand Cols of the Alps just around the corner.


For its 13th edition

For five days, cyclists will be able to discover routes between 60 and 130 km long, accompanied by instructors with the BE Cycling certificate. Each day participants go out on their bikes with assistance and supplies. These five days will help them discover or rediscover the most beautiful alpine passes: Aravis, Croix Fry, Plan Bois, Epine, Les Saisies, Glières plateau, Grand Colombier, Biche, Plaine Joux, Bisanne … all of which have featured or will feature in the Tour de France.

This course takes place in the magnificent natural setting of the Val d’Arly. The organisational teams spend a lot of time making sure this experience is a success. A relaxed atmosphere, with well designed outings that will help you progress, even if you are only a modest cyclist. This is one of the biggest advantages of the course – there is something for everyone because there are two groups to take into account the differences in level, so everyone can enjoy a circuit, no matter what their level is. It would take too long to try to list all of the reasons to take part in this course. The best would be to come and try it out for yourself!


3rd year for me on the Aravis Bike Tour and still the same warm and friendly atmosphere. Beautiful courses in different settings depending on the day (Aravis, Beaufortain, etc…), all supervised by very professional instructors. A beautiful adventure that I recommend to all cycling lovers.
