Options

 

Practical Information

Types of bikes:

Unisex hybrid bikes that can be used by both men and women (flat handlebars), similar or equivalent to the Alpenchallenge AC01 with Shimano 105 or Ultegra derailleurs.

High-quality Shimano 105 or Ultegra derailleurs make climbing hills easier 
- Disc brakes for better stopping ability and avoiding skidding during rain 
- A maximum 10 kg (22 lbs.) bike weight for optimal comfort.

            The bikes used currently are BMC Alpenchallenge AC01 Deore XT/SLX. Our partner will be upgrading their fleet in 2017.

            Extra-padded seats for women.

            Pouch for accessories (camera, windbreaker, etc.). Please do not carry large items with you.

            Each bike is equipped with a GPS programmed with the day’s itinerary so that everyone can bike at their own pace.

            Passengers can bring their own cleated cycling shoes, but you must also bring your own pedals so that they can be attached to our bikes.

 
Where we bike:

            On paved roads or bike paths.

            We will not go on mountain bike routes.

 
Biking while the ship cruises

            One or more minivans with guide(s) will follow the group of cyclists.

            Bikes will be stored in the minivan and picked up each day by passengers.

                            For the slightest problem, the driver of the minivan will either repair the bike or replace it.
