Our fully supported cycling trips are exactly that: cycling escapes custom-made exactly as you want, with our full support throughout the journey. We create the perfect cycling holiday, meet you at the airport when you land, chauffeur you to your hotel and let you forget about everything except enjoying your escape. Stress-free, fully supported, and perfectly adapted for you.
Sommet provides the highest level of pre-trip service you could wish for: we’ll take time to get to know you while creating your journey to make sure it is hand-built to perfection. For us, fully supported cycling trips start at the first contact. So from the moment you land and we come to collect you, you will not have to lift a finger. Simply get on your bike, ride, relax and soak up the culture with challenging, beautiful cycling.
The rides we curate are the best local routes tailored to your desires and abilities. We take into account your level and needs, and we create the best rides the region has to offer for you. En-route coffee and cakes, delicious lunches? Of course – and we’ll ensure we ride the quietest and most rewarding – not necessarily the most used – routes in the area. The stuff Strava heat maps miss. Even the style of the rides you prefer will be considered; we’ll design beautiful routes in the region you visit, but adjust their character and mood to fit in with yours each day.
We want you riding roads and seeing places you’d only know about if you’d been given the secrets by a local proud of their area and keen to show off only the best bits.

SOMMET FULLY SUPPORTED TRIPS INCLUDE:
Consultation – Where, when and how many guests?
– Level and type of rides wanted.
– ‘Getting to know you’ communications, so we understand you and what you want.
– As many questions as you need answering before during and after the trip.
– Pre-trip guidance so you know exactly what to expect and what to bring.
Transers – Met at the airport, chauffeured and accompanied to your accommodation.
– We have a preferred list of exceptional hotels, villas, country houses and stylish apartments that understand our needs and the needs of cyclists.
Full cycling support – Professional mechanics who build your bike on arrival (or prep your hire bike), and wash and service your bike daily ready for the next day’s challenges.
– Van support throughout all rides with healthy, sports-specific nutrition and drinks, and tools for any mechanical issues (‘sticky bottle’ as and when needed!).
– Professional guides with great local knowledge, wherever your choice of location. Riding, guiding, sharing local details and points of interest, and encouraging you all the way.
Restaurants – We know the best, tried and tested. Family-owned, hearty and healthy; or Michelin-starred and fancy.
– Top quality bikes to suit you and the trip.
Local knowledge – Routes taking in only the best local roads, cafés, restaurants, villages and places of interest.
Extras – Anything you want adding, we can accommodate. From post-ride sports massages to wine-tasting, barista courses and more.
Every aspect of your trip will be taken care of and we will be there with you all the way. Imagine a good friend showing you proudly around their home region. That’s us, but with the added value of being your personal soigneur, taking care of everything; from chauffeuring to bike prep, to preparing your food and sharing a drink and a laugh with you about where you dropped us on the day’s climbs.
Sommet Custom Fully Supported. Stress-free cycling. Your dream, your trip, our support all the way.
