Open trips


While the majority of my trips each year are custom trips for private groups, I also run a few 'open' trips. These are for solo travellers, couples or small groups who I help to assemble into groups of around 8 people, or they are trips that smaller groups have come up with and are looking for people to join them to make up the numbers.

I tend to run them to the most popular destinations like Mont Ventoux (Spring & Autumn) and the Alps or Pyrenees (Summer), but if you'd like to go somewhere else and you'd like me to help you to assemble a group large enough to make the trip cost effective for you then just let me know. Lots of these trips start with a proposal from an individual or small groups who'd just like my help in filling a cost-effective group.

Below are the current trips that have spaces.


Open Trips for 2019:

There are 3 places currently available to fill a group going to a new base in the southern Alps. I have a group of 6 riders confirmed looking for two more to fill the group. This is a quiet corner at the southern edge of the Alps at a new base called the Serre des Ormes, which is in the wonderful Méouge Valley, near Sisteron.

This is a 6 day trip running from 7th to 12th October. Price is £895 which includes your accommodation (shared room on dinner, bed & breakfast basis - apart from one night out at your own expense).
