This (and riding our bikes) is our main focus for the trip although this trip will incorporate some tourist days as well. We cater for cyclists of all abilities by providing riding options each day. To enjoy our trips you don’t need to be an athlete, but do need to be someone who cycles regularly and in good health.

Each day we’ll have options for rides to suit people who feel like a challenge, or an easy day enjoying the scenery. We ride on quiet scenic roads and where possible we ride on the race course ahead of the race. As with all of our tours you’ll be guided by our expert team of ride leaders, drivers and guides.

Itinerary

Saturday, 6 July 2013: Bienvenue

Our tour starts today with our staff meeting you as you arrive in Toulouse, with a transfer to our modern 4 star hotel close to the airport. Toulouse is easily reached by train from Paris, or by flights from many European airports.

As the old capital of Languedoc and France’s fourth-largest city, Toulouse (known as la ville en rose, or the city in pink) is the major city of the southwest, and the gateway to the Pyrenees mountain range. It is an ancient city with a stormy history. Complimenting this distinguished history, Toulouse is also a city of the future and the high-tech centre of the aerospace industry in France. It is home to Airbus and Aérospatiale — and the National Centre for Space Research has been headquartered here for more than 3 decades.

Once we’ve got you settled into the hotel we will assemble bikes and take a short local ride to make sure you and your bike are all in good working order after your long journey. It’s a nice ride of about 40kms along a local bike path, past the giant A380 factory and in to the surrounding countryside. We can return to the hotel in time to see the finish of today’s race stage at Ax-3-Domaines live on TV in the hotel bar.

Tonight we will have a welcome dinner where you will meet your fellow travellers and where our staff will answer all your questions on your upcoming adventure.

Overnight: Toulouse
Meals: Dinner


Sunday, 7 July 2013: The First Big Mountains Day

The Tour de France marks its visit to the Pyrenees with a stage from St Girons to the spa town of Bagneres de Biggore, before the race travels north to enjoy the first rest day of the tour. This will be the last chance until the race enters the Alps in the final week for the climbers to show their prowess so we can expect an exciting stage. Today’s stage will be the Queen Stage of the Pyrenees with no less than 5 climbs: Col de Portet d’Aspet, Col de Menté, Col de Peyresourde, Col de Val Louron-Azet and finally the 10 km climb up the La Hourquette d’Ancizan. This will be a great chance to see the race in the spectacular setting of the Haute Pyrenees.

We will leave Toulouse early and travel to the heart of the Pyrenees where we will begin our ride. We have numerous options for rides today including one or a number of the famous climbs of the Pyrenees. The possibilities include the Col de Peyresourde, Col de Val Louron-Azet, La Hourquette d’Ancizan and the Col d’Aspin. Once again we will have a few mouth watering (or leg snapping) options for you.

After the “lantern rouge” has made their way over the climb and the road opens we’ll ride back down to meet the bus and watch the final moments of the race live on TV before we continue on to our hotel in Lourdes.

In the heart of the Pyrenees, Lourdes is a religious centre and receives more than 5 million pilgrims from all over the world every year most of whom come to take the healing waters. Lourdes was just a small market town on the 11 February, 1858 when Bernadette Soubirous saw the Virgin Mary along the Gave. Today Lourdes has the second greatest number of hotels in France (outside Paris) with 230 establishments. For us though it is the geographical position, at the foot of the mountains making it an ideal starting-point for our cycling trips into the Pyrenees with all of the major climbs not far from us. The candlelight parade is held each night at 9.00pm and is a must see.

Overnight: Lourdes
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Monday, 8 July 2013: One of the Best, the Tourmalet!

The Tour de France has moved on and the professionals have a rest day, but not us! This morning we tackle the highest road in the central Pyrenees, the 2115 meter Col du Tourmalet. You’ve all seen the TV images of this mighty mountain each year on the Tour de France, now is your chance to see what it’s all about. We will tackle it from the same direction that the race took in 2012, so we will head south from the hotel down the bike path which is a converted rail line to Argeles Gazost and then up the Gorge du Luz to Luz St Saveur at the base of the Tourmalet before the final 17 kilometre ascent to the summit of the Tourmalet. The cafe at the top is a nice warm place to be and has a nice collection of cycling memorabilia. For those who don’t want to ride the Tourmalet it’s possible to ride to Luz St Saveur and return for a ride of 65 kilometres.

From the top of the Tourmalet we will head back to the hotel by the same way or it is also possible to continue over and down through Bagneres de Bigorre, making both rides 100 kilometres.

Overnight: Lourdes
Meals: Breakfast


Tuesday, 9 July 2013: The Col d’Aubisque

Today we will ride what is regarded as the most scenic of the famous climbs of the Pyrenees, Col du Soulor and Col d’Aubisque.

We will again head south from the hotel down the bike path to Argeles Gazost where we begin our ascent of the Col du Soulor and Col d’Aubisque. The climb starts straight from the town centre but once the first few kms is out of the way it settles down and is a pleasant ride through small villages until the village of Arrens-Marsous, where a series of switchbacks and some quite steep sections reminds us that we are in the mountains! Once at the top of Col du Soulor we can stop at the cafe for refreshments and admire the stunning views before continuing on to the Aubisque along the Corniche du Cirque de Litor, which is a highlight with stunning scenery and the odd cow standing on the road with his bell ringing to warn you if there happens to be some mist.

At the top of the Col d’Aubisque we will take the obligatory photos to commemorate our achievements and enjoy the long descent back to Argeles Gazost and up the path back to Lourdes making a total of 80 kilometres. For those wanting something less taxing we can go to Argeles for coffee or even go to one of the lovely villages part way up the climb and return to Lourdes.

Overnight: Lourdes
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Wednesday, 10 July 2013: Au Revoir Pyrenees

With a few hard days in the Pyrenees in our legs we will take it a bit easier today as we leave the Pyrenees and transfer to our next stop in Cahors, an historic town on the Lot river in an area known throughout France for its idyllic scenery and charming villages. We will spend two nights in this area, which is also known for its many beautiful cycling routes along quiet river valleys and through the cliffs of rugged gorges.

Most of the morning will be taken up with our transfer so you can relax and enjoy the scenery as we travel north. On arrival in Cahors you can enjoy lunch in the medieval centre before we take a short recovery ride this afternoon, a scenic 40km loop from the hotel along the Lot river.  We’ll make a stop at the end of the ride at the symbol  of Cahors, the Pont Valentre. This famous Unesco World Heritage site bridge, built in the 14th century is unique and has three towers each with large arched gateways that define its historical role as a defensive bridge at the entrance to the town.

At the end of the ride if it’s warm you can relax by the pool or take a walk through the small streets of the medieval town centre. Tonight is free to eat at a restaurant of your choice in Cahors.

Overnight: Cahors
Meals: Breakfast

Thursday, 11 July 2013: A Classic Ride

We have a full day to enjoy the Lot and Dordogne river valleys, so we special ride planned for this morning. From Cahors we will ride along the Lot river valley to the picture book village of St Cirq Lapopie, which is an official “plus beaux” village of France. This is one of our favourite rides in France so not to be missed.

Our main ride of the day is a 70 km return ride with a bit of a climb as we initially leave the river valley before descending back down to the river and following it all the way to St Cirq Lapopie. This is a gentle ride following the river, where the cliffs overhang the narrow road so low that in some places you’ll feel like you need to duck!

After a break in the village to explore you have the option of a flat ride back to Cahors along the river, or returning in the comfort of the bus. For those that wanting more of a challenge there is the option of extending the ride to 95kms with a side trip north across the hills to the Cele river where you follow the valley back to the Lot River and return to Cahors.

The remainder of the day is free to explore Cahors, with the evening free to eat at one of the small restaurants in the medieval centre.

Overnight: Cahors
Meals: Breakfast

Friday, 12 July 2013: The Masif Centrale

We leave the Lot river valley this morning and travel north to the Auvergne and its landscape of extinct volcanoes and small villages built of volcanic rock. It’s an area like no other in France and has featured many times in past editions of the Tour de France for good reason, the cycling in this sparsely populated region is as good as you’ll find anywhere. Today we will ride a section of stage 8 from the 2011 Tour, where Movistar rider Rui Costa narrowly beat Phillipe Gilbert and Cadel Evans to take the stage victory at the Super-Besse ski area.

We’ll drive first to the town of Le Mont-Dore, a thermal spa town and low altitude winter resort in the Monts Dore ski area. After a quick stop for lunch it’s on to the bikes for a climb up to Col de la Croix St Robert, a piece of cake at an average of 6% gradient for 6kms. The rest of the day is easier being undulating, but we gradually lose altitude. There is definitely more downhill than uphill on today’s rides as we descend through the extinct volcanoes of the Parc Regional des Volcans. Our shorter ride option of 50km takes a gentler climb over the smaller Col de la Croix Morand, then enjoys the long descent from the Masif Centrale plateau to our hotel near Clermont – Ferrand.

Tonight we’ll enjoy dinner and a restful night in our hotel to ready ourselves for a return to the Tour de France tomorrow.

Overnight: Clermont Ferrand
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Saturday, 13 July 2013: Heading South

The Tour de France is heading south after a journey through Brittany and the Loire Valley and we will rejoin the race again and follow it over the final 9 days through to the finish in Paris.

We’ll catch up with the race today around Roanne where we expect there will be an intermediate sprint. However once we know the final details of the race route we’ll choose a nice spot to end our ride and watch the race come through this afternoon.

This will be a perfect day on the bike for us with quiet roads and little traffic. After the flat roads of the Loire we’ll notice the hills today on what will be a chance for us to gauge our fitness before the upcoming mountains of the Alps. As usual we will offer a longer option of around 100 kilometres and a shorter option of 40 to 60 kilometres.

After we’ve had our taste of Le Tour for the day we’ll continue on our journey south to Provence and our hotel in the small town of Nyons in an area known as Drome-Provencale. This is typical Provence with a landscape of vineyards, lavender fields, olive groves and picture book villages. We  have the luxury of a 4 night stay in our traditional hotel situated in the heart of the town. It is customary for the town to put on festivities to celebrate tomorrow’s national holiday, so there will be music and dancing in the town square tonight.

Overnight: Nyons
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Sunday, 14 July 2013: A Day for the French

Today is a big day for us, and for the French people as it is the “fete nationale”, Bastille Day. It’s a tradition for French riders to try to score a stage victory today and being a holiday weekend the locals will be out in force to cheer on the local heroes. It’s a long stage today, not hard at first, but with a sting in the tail as the finish is on the summit of Mont Ventoux. If it’s a hot day then the late afternoon climb will be punishing for the riders as Ventoux is a notoriously hard climb in the summer heart with totally exposed slopes over the last 7 kms.

We will head off early this morning from Nyons following the race route in the direction of Mont Ventoux. It’s 25 kilometres to Malaucene, then a further 12 kilometres along a beautiful road to the pretty village of Bedoin at the base of the climb. It will be chaotic here as it’s where all roads to Ventoux come together so it won’t be possible to get our bus here. You may like to head up the climb  to a point where you can see the race pass. Chalet Reynard is a great spot to see the race as it is a natural amphitheater and you can see the riders coming and going as well as there being a big screen to show the action live. There is also food and drink available.

After seeing the race pass we will descend down to Bedoin and then back to our hotel in Nyons.

Overnight: Nyons
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Monday, 15 July 2013: Mont Ventoux, Le Geant de Provence

Today is a rest day for the pros of the Tour de France, but it’s not for us. Today we’ll take our turn at riding Mont Ventoux and see how our efforts compare with the riders of the peloton. We may take a bit longer but we’ll enjoy it a bit more perhaps!

We’ll get away in the cool of the morning and travel to the village of Malaucene where we will begin our warm up ride over to the base of Mont Ventoux, Bedoin. For those who want an easier ride today we can propose an option around some local villages that will be much easier.  This is the most famous and traditional route of the Tour de France that winds its way up through the forest to Chalet Reynard where the well known “moonscape” of Mont Ventoux comes into view. With the hardest section now behind us, the last 6 kilometres of bare landscape provides magnificent views over the plains of the Luberon as you pass by the monument to Tom Simpson, who died tragically on the slopes of the mountain in the 1967 Tour de France.

After the compulsory photographs at the summit we’ll head back down via the thrilling descent to Malaucene for lunch and a cool drink in the shade. Once we’ve recovered it’s back to the hotel in the bus, or if you still have the energy a 25km ride back to Nyons.

Overnight: Nyons
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Tuesday, 16 July 2013: See the Race Start

Today’s stage of the Tour de France is from Vaison la Romaine to Gap, a route that’s been travelled many times in the Tour de France. After a day of rest the riders will be re-energised and this is about the last opportunities for those that aren’t pure climbers to make their mark on the race. Although today’s stage gains altitude all the way to Gap it features only one not too difficult col, the Cat 2 Col de Manse right at the end of the stage.

As Vaison la Romaine is only a short ride from our hotel we can have a leisurely start this morning and then ride to Vaison to experience a race start. Vaison la Romaine is like many old French towns, divided between the modern town where the majority of people live and the historic medieval old town perched on a hill above the newer town and old Roman ruins. Vaison is also known for having a large and colourful weekly market every Tuesday so hopefully we can visit today. We’ll arrive in Vaison in plenty of  time to see the riders make their way through the town to the sign on area in the hour before the stage start and perhaps grab a few autographs and photos. An alternative today is to take a slightly longer ride this morning from the hotel and return to see the race pass by the town early this afternoon as it makes its way to Gap.

After the race departs Vaison we’ll have lunch then jump on the bikes head back to Nyons via a couple of different routes taking us through the small villages and vineyards of the area.  Back in Nyons you can relax, explore the old town centre that dates back to Roman times and catch the rest of the race live on TV.

Overnight: Nyons
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Wednesday, 17 July 2013: The 21 Corners of Alpe d’Huez

Today we leave the Mediterranean feel of Provence and head north to the majestic scenery of the French Alpes. With the race arriving on Alpe d’Huez tomorrow we’ll make today our day to ride Alpe d’ Huez, as it could possibly be closed on race day and we don’t want you to miss out on climbing this mythical mountain.

From Nyons we will drive to the small town of Le Bourg d’Oisans at the base of Alpe d’Huez. The town will be filled with cyclists who like us have made a pilgrimage to climb Alpe d’Huez before the race. It’s a pleasant place to enjoy lunch and shop for a souvenir jersey to take home to impress your friends!

The route up to the 1850 meter Alpe d’Huez via the 21 switchbacks is only 13.5 km, with the first few kilometres being the toughest, but it’s an achievable ride for most people. The ride is not easy but certainly memorable and you will be cheered on all the way up by the thousands of enthusiastic fans camped out on the mountain side waiting for the arrival of the race tomorrow.  Once at the top you can have your photo taken on the podium there and enjoy the accomplishment of reaching this famous village.

After we have returned to Bourg d’Oisans we will drive to Grenoble where we spend the next 2 nights. Grenoble is set in a spectacular location at the foot of the Chartreuse mountain range is ideally located for us to travel to the next two stages of the Tour de France. Although Grenoble’s history goes back more than 2000 years it is now one of the most modern and prosperous cities in France with a reputation for scientific research and advanced industries. Our hotel in Grenoble is close to the historic centre where you will find many restaurants to choose from tonight.

Overnight: Grenoble
Meals: Breakfast


Thursday, 18 July 2013: Double Trouble, twice up Alpe d’Huez

This is the day that many race fans have been waiting for, the double ascent of Alpe d’Huez. Although this famous climb has featured many times before as a stage finish and even a time trial, it has never been ascended twice before in the one stage. After the first ascent up the traditional route from Le Bourg d’Oisans the race will descend down the small road that goes over the Col de Sarenne and back to Le Bourg d’Oisans. The race will then climb the 21 switchbacks a second time before crossing the finish line at the top of Alpe d’Huez.

This morning you will have the choice of riding the 50km along the Isere valley to Le Bourg d’Oisans, or travelling in the coach. The crowds will be enormous and the atmosphere electrifying around Alpe d’Huez today.

We can see the race midway up the climb to Alpe d’Huez or around Bourg d’Oisans depending on your preference. As soon as the race has passed it’s important to get back to the bus before the traffic pours off the mountain clogging up the valley road for hours. We’ve got a bit of a drive to our hotel in Aix-les-Bains, but it’s worth the effort to be in the perfect place to ride to the race route tomorrow. Don’t worry we’ll let you sleep in tomorrow!

We’ll have dinner either on our way to the hotel or on arrival at the hotel.  Our hotel for the next 2 nights is a modern hotel near the lake with a rooftop restaurant that has a splendid view of Lac du Bourget and the surrounding mountains.

Overnight: Grenoble
Meals: Breakfast

Friday, 19 July 2013: Lakes and Mountains

The 20th stage of the race will depart this morning from Le Bourg d’Oisans at the bottom of Alpe d’Huez and head across the mountains to a finish at the ski resort of Le Grand Bornand. This is an epic stage that passes over no less than 5 climbs including 2 hors categorie climbs before finishing at the ski station of Le Grand Bornand.

After a long day yesterday we will be rewarded with a more leisurely start this morning and enjoy the splendid surroundings and lake views from our hotel.

After a leisurely breakfast we will head across to see the race at the climb to the Col de l’Épine, the second last climb of the day. On our way we will ride (in reverse) a nice section of the race route for tomorrow including the Col de Leschaux before we descend down to the lake and along the bike path that will take us right to the base of the climb. From here we can climb up as far as we wish to see the race pass before we descend back to the bus for a transfer back to Aix-les-Bains for the evening. This will be an 80 kilometre ride however for those wanting a shorter ride the bus will take you to the bike path after the climb for a ride to the see the race.

Overnight: Aix les Bains
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Saturday, 20 July 2013: The Last Day in the Mountains

The penultimate stage of the race today starts from Annecy today and breaks with recent editions of the race, which have been time trials. Instead the stage today is a full on road stage …..

Our hotel is just a few kilometres from the race course today so we have the opportunity to see the race in a number of locations. You could choose to see the race on the climb of Mont Revard just behind Aix les Bains by doing a nice loop, riding up the race route to the top of the climb, see the race pass and then drop down to the hotel to see the finish on TV. This would be approximately 50 kilometres.

As a second option we could offer a longer ride where we will see the race twice. We will ride from the hotel and see the race early, just out of Annecy on the lake and then ride up to see the race very close to or at the finish on top of Semnoz. From here we could drop down the climb to meet the bus for a short trip to the hotel or ride back to the hotel. The full ride would be approximately 90 kilometres or the shorter option 60 kilometres.

As it’s a big day for us tomorrow, we will have a special farewell dinner tonight, leaving tomorrow evening free for everyone to see the race arrive in Paris and the spectacular fireworks in the French capital to celebrate the end of the 100th edition of Le Tour. We will dine at a local restaurant close to our hotel and drink a toast to what has been a great tour.

Overnight: Aix les Bains
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Sunday, 21 July 2013: The Finale in the City of Lights

This morning we will head to the TGV station in Aix les Bains where it’s on to the high speed train to Paris, arriving in the French capital late morning. On arrival in Paris we will transfer to our 4 star hotel situated in the revitalised Bercy area of Paris.

This afternoon we have a special treat in store. We will offer a ride through the streets of Paris taking in some of the famous sights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Elysees where preparations will be in full swing, the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde. Mid-afternoon we will return to the hotel to pack our bikes (if necessary) and freshen up, get a bite to eat and head down to the Champs Elysees. If you don’t fancy a ride today then all the delights of Paris are available for you to explore before seeing the race this afternoon.

The final stage of the 100th edition of the Tour de France will come to a close on the Champs-Elysees as night falls, with the stage finish in Paris set for 9:45pm. If the race timing follows as other years the riders will arrive at the Champs Elysees around 7.30pm but the caravan will be there to entertain you from around 6.00pm.

In another first the peloton will go all the way to the top of the Champs-Elysees and around the Arc de Triomphe as part of the finishing circuit, as Paris showcases itself as the City of Lights. After the presentation a fireworks display is expected to follow and also of course the traditional lap of honour by the teams so don’t expect to be in bed till very late and don’t book an early flight on Monday morning!

The last stage is traditionally a procession until the entrance onto the Champs-Elysees where the racing really starts. Riders traditionally chat, celebrate the final stage, pose for photographs, drink Champagne… sometimes they even dress-up, swap bikes and generally horse around. Once the race gets into Paris, the Yellow jersey and his team lead the peloton onto the Champs-Elysees for what is a big criterium in the centre of the French Capital or in the case of 2013 we can use another French term, nocturne as it will be set in the twilight.

Overnight: Paris
Meals: Breakfast
