The Short Break Road Cycling Holiday Specialist


The Etape du Tour – Live the Legend, ride a Tour de France stage!

The Etape du Tour needs little introduction as Europe’s benchmark cyclo-sportive event.

Now in its 24th year, this sporting challenge recreates the queen stage of the Tour de France each year, allowing amateur riders to experience being part of a peloton of 15000 along closed roads raced on by the Tour de France.

This year’s Etape passes right by our door, so if you dream of riding some of the same tarmac as your heros, you’ve come to the right place.
