Alpinechaingang is a family business run by Dave Beattie and his eldest daughter Amy. Both are avid riders who live in the Alps and organise and staff each trip. Tracey Dobson also plays an integral part managing all the bookings and paper work in the UK.
Dave is a very experienced and passionate cyclist. He has been riding and racing his bike since moving to the Alps 20 years ago. Prior to that Dave was an international runner competing for Scotland. Although ‘getting on a bit’ he still managed a top 50 in a recent Etape de Tour. Now he simply enjoys leading the groups and taking riders to the amazing places we visit on our tours.
Amy leads a very active lifestyle, teaching skiing during the winters and running and riding during the summers. Her summer work consists of her working as the support on our tours or from the UK office. Having been educated in France she is bilingual and is very good to have on board. She is very keen to develop and promote women’s cycling here in the Alps and has plans to run women only tours.
