Tour de France

Alpine Cadence : Supported rides for cyclists in the Alps

Tour de France 2019

22nd - 28th July 2019

This trip provides the rider with a perfect combination of riding and watching the incredible Tour de France. Our trip will concentrate on the final 2 mountain stages of the Tour that will certainly decide the outcome of the event. The stage from St Jean de Maurienne to Tignes will scale the mighty Col de l'Iseran, then the Albertville to Val Thorens stage will head via the Cormet de Roselend and Cote de Longefoy on it's way to an exciting climax. As a rider on this trip you'll have the chance to both ride the routes of the these stages and well as watching the pros from your choice of vantage point. Fabulous riding and total immersion into the atmosphere of the event are guaranteed.

 Bear in mind that from 19-22 July we'll be running our annual Etape du Tour accommodation/support package for this incredible amateur event where riders will be able to race on closed roads that pivotal stage from Albertville to Val Thorens. 

There is the option to put both the Etape and Tour de France trips together for a fabulous 9 night trip running 19-28 July.
