Mammoth Alps Trip 2019

Mammoth Alpine Adventure 2019...new venue!

Mammoth Alps trip 2019...Some new experiences to enjoy next summer. Become a Mammoth Alpinist. Come and join us riding in the French Alps on some of Europe's nicest routes and famous climbs. Fully guided rides with vehicle support throughout. Our team car will be close at hand all day, with expert advice provided by Gary & the team.

Four individual weeks to consider on this riding holiday...however, ride as hard as you like. We will be right alongside you. This could be a new experience for you, a chance to develop, or even prepare for a bigger goal.

Week1, July 6th-13th
Week 2, July 13th-20th
Week 3, July 20th-27th
Week 4, July 27th-August 3rd

All rides start in the heart of the Grande Alps.....many of the most famous routes can be ridden, with the added interest of back roads we have found over the years. Route explanations will be provided to riders, although we ensure nobody is left in the unknown.
Lightweight bikes in excellent condition are recommended. A lowest gear of 34 x 30 would be advised, even for the fittest guys & girls. We have spare equipment to buy from the mechanic, but better for you to organise all that is required ahead of travelling.
Ride between 70 and 115 miles each day, or take a day off and swim in the lake. Whatever you choose to do, there aren't many nicer places to spend time. There are loads of activities if you take a rest day.

After 11 years of basing ourselves out of Les Contamines Montjoie, we are moving to another luxurious chalet closer to the climbs themselves, with the added benefit of a flat valley to start and finish each ride. If you’ve been on the trip previously, you know the area we are moving to.....Samoens, very close to the Col de Joux Plane.

There is secure bike storage and good workshop facilities, with one of our very own mechanics travelling out to France to support all of the bikes. Each morning your bike will be lined up and ready to just get on and ride. On returning to the chalet, simply let the mechanic know what needs sorting on your bike and it will be done ahead of the next outing.

To assist in recovery following a tough days riding, Sports Massage is available. Part of recovery is re-fuelling, so great attention is given to the meals offered. Each day starts with a breakfast of porridge, cereals, eggs, bread, pastries and coffee. For 2019, lunch will be organised on the longest riding days, provided by the following car, and on return to the chalet each day there will be snacks available prior to a 2-course evening meal. For the final part of recovery, there are a number of nice bars to try out within walking distance of the chalet. All dietary requirements are catered for.

£595 will give you a fully supported riding holiday in a twin room with great food, company, scenery and adventures. And in recognition of you becoming a Mammoth Alpinist, a special edition riding jersey will be waiting for you in your room. A single room option is bookable at £995/week. Two of these rooms are available. There is also one room of 4 sharing at £495 per person. All rooms have en-suite facilities.
£100 deposit secures your place on the adventure. The balance is split and paid in March and May. Only 14 places are available each week. Good luck in your preparations if you decide to come along. All you have to do is organise getting yourself there.

Contact Gary to make a reservation. Bike transport to and from the Alps will also be available at £25 fully insured......happy days!
