The Alpine and mountain cycling teams start their trip to Paris in the mountains. It offers three days with plenty of elevation over some of the most impressive mountains. Afterwards, the teams drive out of the mountains to continue the trip to Paris. The Alpine and mountain cycling teams will arrive simultaneously with the other Team Rynkeby teams from all around Europe.
Most of the training sessions and meetings do NOT take place physically. Training often occurs in smaller groups or alone, and team meetings will be local or digital.
Participation on a mountain team is related to higher costs as there will be extra travel costs for events and the starting point for the trip to Paris.
On the Alpine and mountain cycling teams, it is a criterion that you have experience riding a racing bike and are in good shape, which means this is not a team for beginners.
The mountain cycling teams are accessible to everyone, which means a lot of the communication will be in English, as they are international teams. It is, therefore, necessary that you can communicate in English.
