The Alpine Transfer Company begin embracing the new season this month supporting the many cyclists and visitors keen to enjoy the 2016 Giro d’Italia.

The Giro d’Italia is one of the three annual Grand Tour road bike races in Europe – as is the infamous Tour de France – held in several stages over three consecutive weeks. This year, the first stage starts in the Netherlands on the 6th of May and the stages that follow are mainly in Italy, with a couple of visits to our region of France, finishing with a flat route from Cuneo to Turin on the 29th of May.

Convenient airport transfers for cyclists and their bikes

The stages that appear in France will arrive in Risoul on the 27th of May and depart from nearby Guillestre on the 28th; evidently two of the later ‘Mountain Stages’ that are set to test the even the favourite teams such as Orica–GreenEDGE (Australia) and Team Katusha (Russia).

The Alpine Transfer Company will be working flat-out during these stages in the Southern Alps and after the finish in Turin, providing airport transfers and local transport for dozens of participants and visitors to the region, here especially for the grueling bike race.

To enable us to provide convenient airport transfers for cyclists with their own bicycles, we have recently purchased a sturdy bike trailer, made-to-order to suit our clients’ needs.

The acquisition of our shiny new bicycle trailer is excellent timing for the Giro d’Italia, designed to securely carry 8 bikes while their owners are comfortably seated in our spacious new transfer vehicles (Ford ‘Tourneo Custom’), with loads of luggage space and leg room – essential for those needing to stretch out after an arduous ride.

Our local partner, Hotel Plein Sud, will also be supporting the cyclists and other travelers with an exceptional opening from mid May. Guests looking for private transfers from Turin to Serre Chevalier, or for transport to the nearby stages and around the valley during their stay, are welcome to give us a call and arrange for our professional drivers to collect them!

Please contact Emma to book transfers and transport on +33 (0)6 85 68 71 31 or use the booking form above, we’ll be available 24-7, 7 days a week!
