In the center of the Auvergne Volcanoes, you will stay in the charming medieval village of Besse-et-St-Anastaise in a very nice traditional hotel ** where you will be able to enjoy its excellent restaurant with local cuisine but also its SPA / well-being area.

Denis Leproux, ex-professional cyclist and Sports Director at the highest professional level, as well as Mevenig Rio, qualified coach, will accompany your cycling trips in the Regional Natural Park of the Volcanoes of Auvergne. They will adapt to your rhythm and will know how to put at your disposal all their experiences to answer your expectations and questions.

Get rid of the constraints, we secure your bike rides and you will benefit from a supervision and a complete logistical assistance (assistance vehicle, breakdown service, refuelling, preparation of bikes, water bottles, washing of cycling clothes, …)

Finally, we will organize a daily briefing/debriefing with our cycling coaches Denis and Mevenig at the end of each day in order to adapt your stay to your level and expectations. After the debriefing, you will benefit from daily advice from your coaches during friendly themed workshops (sports nutrition, prevention and recovery with the loan of our Compex equipment, physical preparation, choice and maintenance of equipment, or any other subject on request, …). At the end of the course, we will organize a mobility and stretching session that you can easily reproduce at home.

You are not very well positioned on your bike? You would like to review your position? Our Mevenig expert can offer you a complete postural study as an option.

Would you like to enjoy this beautiful region with your family or your partner? We can advise you on visits, activities and hikes to do each afternoon.
