This is the 3rd time I have stayed with Kevin, good clean accommodation, fresh breakfast every day. This place is great fro cycling or skiing in the winter, about 45 minutes from Grenoble and 2 hours from Lyon.

Mythical cycling climb and certainly worth the trip. Steep, especially for first 2 miles, but not hardest climb I have done. Switchbacks and views on way up are amazing! After you finish, have a beer and burger at the English Pub at the top. Going down and climbing up the back side -Col de Sarenne is also awesome. Not as...

We stayed here for an entire week and we had plenty of great cycling to do right from the B&B. We enjoyed our stay here and the owners were very professional and personable. There was breakfast prepared each morning and they were accommodating to provide earlier if asked. We enjoyed interacting with other house mates from all over the world....

We have just returned from an amazing few days staying at Cycling Ascents. From the moment that we arrived to the time that we left (which was too soon for us!), we were made to feel so very welcome and comfortable. I booked this trip for my Husband's 40th Birthday present and he assures me that it was the best...

Kevin & Delphine took very good care of us for the 7 nights we stayed with them. We had a "glitch" with French Customs in delivering our bikes, but K & D made sure they got delivered so we were ready to ride. Frustrating process (French Customs, that is), but K & D helped us out in getting our bikes...

Five of us stayed here for a week at the end of June of which three were undertaking the Marmotte Sportive. Kevin and Delphine are wonderful hosts and made our stay memorable, as did their lovely children Tom and Louis. Kevin gave some really helpful advice regarding riding the Marmotte, which Mark, my husband found invaluable. Their house is spotless...

My wife(non-cyclist) and I spent 6 nights at Kevin and Delphine's home as a base to cycle and hike in the Alps. Their home is a modern house located about a 20 minute walk from the centre of town. There are 5 guest bedrooms all with en-suite facilities. Each morning breakfast is served around a communal table which encourages all...

Delphine, Kevin, and children Tom and Louis all made us very welcome in their purpose built chalet on the outskirts of Le Bourg d'Oisans.

We have just returned from a fantastic week of cycling in the Alps.We had a fab stay with Kevin and Delphine in their lovely home, they were very friendly and helpful, gave excellent knowledge of the area and the best places to cycle.

This is the perfect base to ride the surrounding Alpes. The accommodation is modern, clean and very comfortable. There is a nice TV room and a hot tub if you feel like relaxing after a solid day. The little things that made the difference for me included a guest fridge, sports bars and gels, bike tools (inc. a floor pump)...
