Jan. 3, 2012 - PRLog -- As the only cycling tour operator based in the area, Cyclomundo is fast becoming the most respected name in French Alps cycling. Founded, owned and operated by native French cyclist Bruno Toutain, Cyclomundo provides novices and veteran cyclists alike intimate and memorable experiences along some of the best cycling routes in the world.

A world-class challenge
For serious cyclists looking to push the limits of European cycling, the six-day Challenging Alps tour (http://www.cyclomundo.com/p_geneva_huez.html) is an obvious choice. Featured as an Outside Magazine Trip of the Year in 2011, this tour is based out of Cyclomundo’s hometown, and closes in Alpe d’Huez, a famous resort community along the Tour de France route. The route takes cyclists up some France’s most famous cols: Colombiere, Aravis, Saisies, Madeleine, Telegraphe, and Galibier.
From Alpe d’Huez, Cyclomundo offers an equally challenging route to Nice. This can be combined with the Challenging Alps tour to include the entire “Route des Grandes Alpes,” a route considered one of the crown jewels for French Alps cycling.

A softer, gentler ride
Groups or families looking for a more leisurely experience will prefer Cyclomundo’s Three Lake Cycling tour (http://www.cyclomundo.com/p_geneva_three_lakes.html). Also starting from Geneva, this six-day tour features the gentler side of French Alps cycling. Over the course of six days and five nights, the tour winds around Lake Geneva, Lake Bourget, and Lake Annecy. Much of the route follows the paths of the Rhone and Isere, so travelers will experience the historic villages and riparian ecosystems that surround these famous rivers.

The Cyclomundo philosophy
While Cyclomundo offers guided trips in France, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy, the company focuses on providing self-guided experiences. Before leaving, travelers are provided by Cyclomundo staff with detailed maps and itineraries, which outline not only the route but the best restaurants, shops, and historical sites along the way. There is no guide setting the pace on these trips, but travelers are never on their own. Cyclomundo staff act as an invisible partner of their clients’ trips; they book hotel reservations, transport luggage, and are always available to help travelers who are lost or no longer willing to ride.
