27 February 2012
Fancy cycling with an Olympian in the year of the London Olympics? Well now you have the chance! Graham Bell, five time Olympic skier and Ski Sunday presenter, will be leading our inaugural Mont Blanc challenge between 21st – 24th June.
Arriving in Geneva in the evening of Thursday 21st June, Love Velo will transfer you to Entreves, Courmayeur, and our hotel, the Pilier d’ Angle, which offers magnificent views of Mont Blanc. Depending on your arrival time, you can spen the evening relaxing with a glass of wine and contemplating the challenge that lies ahead of you.
On Friday morning, we suggest you assemble your bike and Love Velo will have their usual team of mechanics on hand to help you. Graham will then be leading a 50km climb into the mountains which we will use as a way to get the legs going for what will be a tough but exhilarating day. Following Love Velo’s briefing for what is in store the following day, you can spend the rest of the day on the bike exploring more of the Aosta valley if you wish, or simply have some down time to ready yourself for Saturday’s challenge.
aturday is race day! We will be up early for a healthy and nutritious breakfast and then it’s to the starting line for Love Velo’s Mont Blanc Challenge.
