This popular weekend combines our two first loves: coffee and gravel riding. Our friends, coffee experts and avid cyclists at Rocket Espresso will be paying us a visit from their base in Milan. Each morning we’ll have the run of the Base Camp cafe to learn the art of the barista direct from Rocket Espresso owner, Andrew Meo. And after a tasty lunch, we’ll venture out on the fleet of Base Camp adventure bikes to experience the local terrain. Dinner will be a chance to exchange riding stories and top brew tips over a few bottles.
Friday 24 November
Arrive into Geneva Airport or make your own way to Talloires. Airport transfer right to the door of our accommodation for the weekend; the sumptuous Abbaye de Talloires. A short spin around the lake if time allows or a coffee in Base Camp if not!
Saturday 25 November
Breakfast at the hotel will be followed by a morning of barista training. Afternoon gravel ride followed by drinks back at Base Camp and dinner in one of the excellent restaurants in Talloires.
Sunday 26 November
The same routine as Saturday with a slightly shorter ride in the afternoon to allow people to catch the last flight from Geneva.
