Ride the same famous climbs as the professional riders
As a cycling fan you will have no doubt enthusiastically followed the Tour de France on television, but actually watching it live is incredible! Millions of fans line the route as the peloton races through France on its annual three week tour around this spectacular country. The holiday atmosphere helps to make the whole experience almost as enjoyable as the cycling itself. Based in a private chalet outside the lovely spa town of Bagneres de Luchon, our week combines the opportunity to test your legs on the most famous local climbs and cheer on the pros from the side of the road. We will watch stages 16, 17 and 18 as the drama plays out on the climbs of Port de Bales, Col de Val Louon-Azet and the mighty Tourmalet. Riding the challenging cols of the Pyrenees can be a humbling experience and only afirms the impressive strength and stamina of the professionals. Will Chris Froome be able to repeat his incredible yellow jersey winning performance? Book early to find out as this special trip sells out very quickly every year.
