Welcome to Velo Club Traverse, your local cycle club in the heart of the Alps.
Over the years, the tours and events run by Traverse Aravis have been bringing together cyclists of all abilities for fun, adventure and great weekends together. As word of mouth has brought more people to us, we have developed into a cycling club focused on sharing new routes and weekends together.
Traverse Aravis presents...
Whether you live in London, Lausanne or Lyon, Velo Club Traverse has something for you. By signing up, you’ll have access to world class cycling experiences with great people at an affordable price, as well as perks, discounts and freebies. We also have plans to develop a club workshop with coffee, cakes, beer and also free energy products for members whilst out here in the Alps.
Based in St Jean de Sixt in the heart of the Alps, we have two exclusive apartments for VCT members to use as our clubhouse - we only ask for a small contribution to the running costs when you stay. Come for the weekend or stay longer - it’s up to you.
Just an hour’s drive from Geneva, you can be here in no time from all over Europe. We are more than happy to come and pick you up from Geneva, making the trip even more affordable and convenient - so hopefully you can visit regularly!
We have access to some great deals which we like to pass on to members - the discounts alone will cover the cost of membership. We let members know the best deals as they come to us, but if you are desperate for something from one of our partners then drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do.
We all like a nice jersey and a bit of kit. When we are not cycling, we are thinking of new designs. We often wonder, what comes first, the weekend destination or the jersey design? We teamed up with Lawi to create the most comfortable and stylish kit out there (well, that’s what we think anyway).
agm and sportives!
As we have done with Traverse Aravis, each year we will pick 2 destinations for our AGMs. These are a great chance to meet up as a club and experience new countries and routes and are exclusively for members. Previously we’ve put on trips to iconic destinations like the Pyrenees, Mont Blanc anc Bormio among others.
Watch out for our upcoming trips including Norway, Girona and an Austrian instalment.
We will also scour the continent for an annual sportive that we will do as a club. There are plenty to be done, and the smaller and friendlier the Sportive the better. We tackle these as a team!
Like all good teams, it is the domestiques that make it happen! We have a team of volunteers who will be out on our AGMS, Sportives to do the grunt work, to help make all members feel like pros!
Accredited by the Association of British Cycling Coaches. VCT members can benefit from free coaching and advice for training programmes. Whether you are planning a sportive or just want to improve fitness. We will try and help you set goals to make your training more efficient.
