Cycling Map of the French Alps

19 Apr

Taking advantage of the Covid19 Lockdown here in France and the fact we are not allowed to ride outside at all at the moment despite some glorious weather, I have finally put the finishing touches to our Climbs of the French Alps Cycling Tube Map posters and stocked a few for mail order dispatch only. Due to the complexity and details of the map they are only available in the larger 70cmx50cm size. They do however fit in an IKEA frame.

Climbs of the French Alps

These are now available to buy on-line only until we are allowed to open up shop again sometime in the future.

I have also created a new stand alone website for our tube maps to which I will be adding a lot more information to over the coming months.

Covid19 and our summer season…

Like all small business (it’s just me!) and especially those in the tourist industry we have seen a collapse of our summer booking both new and existing.

We really do have too many hire bikes in stock for this summer now especially in sizes Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large.

So, if you are interested in buying any of our standard rim brake carbon Shimano Ultegra complete bikes, or if you have a bunch of bits in your garage and you just need a frame and fork please get in touch with us via email.

Complete bikes from 800 euros

Frame and fork plus headset from 250euros plus postage then please contact us for more information.
