Watch and Ride the Tour de France in the Alps – July 2019

Summer 2019 will be the 106th edition of ‘La Grande Boucle’ featuring 21 stages and over 3500km of racing.

As usual, the Tour de France has 3 stages in the French Alps and this year they will feature in the 3rd week of the event, making for a very exciting and challenging finale to the 2nd Grand Tour of the year.

In fact, part of stage 20 – the penultimate day before the procession into Paris – will be passing within riding distance from our home base in the stunning Aravis mountains in the Northern French Alps, and this day is when the race has the potential to be truly won or lost!

So we are very happy to be able to offer a 4-day Tour de France Watch and Ride Experiencewith the ability to watch the thrilling penultimate stage live in the beautiful mountains, as well as the opportunity to ride many of the cols made famous by the Tour de France in previous editions for yourself.

This special weekend will take place from Thursday 25th – Monday 29th July 2019 –  you can find full details of this trip here>>>

Alternatively, you can ride many of the cols made famous by the Tour de France on any of our other Classic, Lite or Custom breaks in the Northern Alps throughout the summer.

For example, the route of the 2018 Tour de France showcased some of amazing road cycling to be found in Annecy and the Aravis mountains – we were excited to see so many of our local climbs and routes feaured during these Alpine stages of the 2018 race.

In fact, Stage 10 of that race offered many of our local favourites Col de la Croix Fry, Plateau des Glieres, Col de Romme and Col de la Colombiere before finishing just down the road in Le Grand Bornand. So you could easily access this for yourself right from our front door!

So if you would like to follow in the tyre tracks of countless Tour de France icons, please contact us for more details >>>
