Looking for your next mountain challenge? Want to take on some of the iconic climbs of the Tour de France in a fully supported environment? Join us for the HotChillee Alpine Challenge  and an epic 3 day cycling tour of the French Alps.

We know that whilst some of you will be tracking Strava segments not everyone is interested in being the first up the climbs, so we’ll help everyone get there in a fully supported environment and, more importantly, make some new friends along the way. Due to the amount of climbing and descending involved, we have rated this event a 4/5 difficulty.

THE LONDON-PARIS by Tour de France

“Riding into Paris under motorbike escort, over the cobbles and past the Arc de Triomphe is a unique experience that you will remember forever.”
Editor, Conquista Magazine


The LONDON-PARIS by Tour de France covers 500 kilometres over 3 days, arriving in Paris on the Saturday and culminate in access to the closed Tour de France course on Sunday, with participants riding the iconic laps of the Champs-Élysées under official race escort just hours before the pros.

Whether you want to race for jerseys in Group 1 or ride in a group supported by the HotChillee Ride Captains, you’ll experience life on the road as a pro with full event support including mechanics, medics, massage therapists and rolling road closures. Our unique event format of fully supported seeded speed groups means there’s an option to suit everyone from seasoned riders to those taking on the challenge of a lifetime.

Supported Gravel Cycling in the Swiss Alps

179km | 5568m | 3 stages | Switzerland | Difficulty 5/5

Entry opens later this year.

The next HotChillee gravel cycling adventure takes us to the Swiss Canton of Graubünden, where the Rhine begins its course and where we will be based to explore the lesser known trails through the Alps.  This is a challenging multi day event over mixed terrain in the most beautiful setting with a mixture of silky smooth tarmac, lots of gravel and even wooded forest trails. The stages are short but packed full of mountain ascents so we’ve rated this one a 5/5 difficulty!
