Ride-On Tours - Holidays to the French Alps
Every summer the French alpine village of Les Gets becomes a Mecca for thousands of mountain bikers. Ride-On first visited Les Gets in the summer of 1999 and realised that visiting mountain bikers needed a reliable source for spare parts as well as experienced mechanics to help with repairs. We then teamed up with the most popular hotel in the region, Le Boomerang, to offer an unbeatable combination of relaxed, quality accommodation with every facility a biker would ever need on holiday.
Les Gets is situated only one hour from Geneva International Airport in the Portes du Soleil region of the French Alps. Considered to be Europe’s premiere mountain bike destination, Les Gets has it all; Cross Country, Freeriding, World Cup Downhill, Slalom, Steep Climbs - everything to challenge even the fittest and skilled of riders. There is network of 24 chairlifts/gondolas and over 500km of specific trails for all abilities. The region is also well known for its famous road climbs and often plays host to Tour de France stages.
As well as being a cyclist’s paradise, Les Gets has much more to offer. This traditional alpine village is the perfect destination for families and there’s plenty going on to tire out the kids. Activities include an adventure park, supervised swimming lake, pony trekking, downhill go-karts, and an acrobatics centre.
If you fancy a change from the riding, Ride-On Tours can also arrange other activities including wakeboarding on Lake Geneva, climbing, paragliding, canyoning, and bungee jumping.
