    Who do you lot use to fly with (with bike and kit) and is Grenoble the nearest/best place to fly into?

    Grenoble is very limited for Summer flights I recall, Geneva and transfer is easyish

    Are you within reach of the Eurostar? If so then Eurostar to Paris then TGV to Lyon or Grenoble. Otherwise Sleazyjet to Lyon.

    I live in Grenoble and I am quite sure that they dont do any flights after the winter season to the UK (not 100% sure though).

    Lyon is pretty much the same distance as Grenoble airport is not actually in Grenoble, its 3/4 the way to Lyon.

    There are buses from Lyon to all the ski places, just google you will find them, easy enough.

    Geneva is further away than Lyon but think there are more flights there, transfers less easy however.

    +1 TGV to Grenoble – you’ll be there by lunch

    Can I recommend the campsite (also lodging) Ferme Noemie if you have considered camping. Went there this gone summer with a friend and his dad, we stayed for a week for cycling, the campsite is 100% geared towards and packed with cyclists (a room to lock your bike in / 24/7 hot showers)

    It’s literally at the bottom of every route you could possibly want to do, get to all the major climbs

    We started off at d’huez a couple days and it took, well I can’t actually remember, but it can’t have been much more than about a 10-15 minute (incredibly pleasant) ride to the foot of it
