Ride the hidden treasures of the Southern & Maritime Alps
Southern French Alps & the Stunning Cote D'Azur
In accordance with our philosophy to build unique cycling experiences for adventurous cyclists, Icon Bike Tours is pleased to reveal the first details of our France Cycling Tour for 2019. Combining the delights of the Maritime Alps & Cote d'Azur with the epic climbs of the southern French Alps, we have the ultimate combination of challenge and reward. Imagine cycling small steep roads, through centuries-old villages & towering gorges in the morning, then plunging into the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean in the afternoon. Top it off with gourmet delights at seaside restaurants and you have the basis of our playbook for the Maritime Alps / Cote d'Azur. Sound tempting? The southern French Alps are home to some of the most extraordinary climbs in all of Europe, including the highest sealed pass of them all, the Cime de la Bonette (2,806m). Cycling here is every bit a scenic, challenging and epic as any in the more famous north, but take away the traffic, the crowds and all of the stress and this is a tour for the purist, someone looking for raw cycling and roads less travelled.
STRICTLY Limited to 12 Places
