DuckStore’s Approach

We bring a ‘Mountain Guide’ philosophy to our cycling tours. Discover our principles, and what we offer.

Guided cycling tours

Here in the French Alps that have been John’s adopted home for 20 years, it’s a centuries-old tradition: savvy, adventurers and skiers hire a local Alpine guide for a memorable, top-quality experience.

The guide takes care of every detail, from routes to restaurants.

Duckstore founder John spends winters leading groups on ski tours in the Alps, so it felt natural to extend this ‘local Alpine guide’ philosophy to cycling tours throughout spring and summer.

Our team and tour types have grown to accommodate and captivate our loyal clients.

Open bike tours

Each year, we schedule a range of open bike tours that enable individual cyclists to sample the best cycling in France, Italy and California. Venues in France, our most popular destination, include the Alps, the Pyrenees, Provence and Corsica. Although each tour has a slightly different focus, each one is designed by cyclists for cyclists. To maximize the experience, we keep each group size small, and fill trips on a first-come, first-served basis.

Custom bike tours

What’s your dream? What do you want to accomplish? Where do you want to ride? Let us develop your idea into a bespoke cycling tour. DuckStore specializes in organizing and leading custom cycling tours for all sorts of groups. We’ve customized tours for both small local cycling clubs and large multi-national corporations. Our local knowledge, extended hospitality network, extensive cycling expertise, and multilingual staff eliminate the uncertainty and hassle from organizing your perfect cycling experience.
