2019 Tour de France Tours

TDF Guest riding Tourmalet Pyrenees

In 2019 we will have been organising trips to the Grand Tours for an amazing 23 years, making us amongst the most experienced Tour Operators at Le Tour.

If you’ve ever stayed up late watching le Tour de France on TV and swooning over the imagery, there’s something special about being there live.

We have a selection of trips for 2019 Tour de France, ranging from 7 Days to 25 Days, to cater for experience riders, social riders and non-riders. There is a trip for you. We put together our itineraries so you can experience the full gamut of le Tour de France 2019 experiences. On the days we see the race, we mix it up between watching a start, finish, epic climb and somewhere en route in a small French village off the beaten tourist drive that one would bypass unless le Tour was in town. That’s what makes it special.

Tour de France 2019 Official Route

Cycling trips to follow the race

TDF Female Guest riding Kapelmuur Gerardsbergen

Opening Week in Belgium and through Wine Regions

Tour de France 2019 starts in Brussels 50 years after Eddy Merckx won his first yellow jersey. The opening stage covers some of the Tour of Flanders roads followed by the team time trial through Brussels.

The Champagne and Alsace wine regions welcome the peloton into France. Riders have to negotiate several climbs through the challenging Vosges and the Central Massif, before the first rest day in Albi.

Middle Week in the Pyrenees, a summit finish on Col du Tourmalet

Albi, the emerging French cycling destination hosts a stage start below the world’s largest brick cathedral. The race enters the Pyrenees with a very fast finish off the Col du Peyresourde and Hourquette d’Anzican.

There is a challenging time trial before a short mountain stage with a finish to Col du Tourmalet, the most summited climb in the Tour de France. The Ariege department hosts the tour again, with a new summit finish above Foix.

Riders have their final rest day in Nimes hosting the tour for 3 days.

Final Week in the French Alps, several passes over 2000m

Riders enter the Alps arriving in Gap in a stage that should set up a breakaway. The race follows a chain of classic climbs through the Alps, Col d’Izoard, Col du Galibier, Col d’Iseran. Stage 18 looks to be the toughest stage on paper.

The penultimate stage is in the Tarentaise Valley, finishing to the popular ski station of Val Thorens.

The traditional finish on the Champs-Elysees takes place on Sunday 28th July.

Is this trip for me?

I'M A NON RIDER, ARE THERE SPECTATOR TRIPS?

Spectactors welcome

We have trips with both riding and non-riding itineraries. The primary focus is seeing the race. On some days, we’ll visit beautiful areas of France where you can experience the food and culture.

They are great for a non-riding partner.

I'M AN EXPERIENCED CYCLIST, WHAT TRIPS ARE FOR ME?

Ride further and climb more

We have cyclist only trips designed for the experienced cyclist. Some rides are more than 100km and may have over 3,000m of climbing.

Riders who complete a good training program enjoy these trips the most.

I'M NO ELITE CYCLIST, SO HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?

Ride regularly

The majority of our trips cater for different riding abilities. We expect that guests have trained to prepare for their riding holiday.

Our easiest rides involve riding in a group at average speeds of more than 20km/hr (15miles/hr) on the flat.

Climb at your own pace.
