The ultimate Tour de France Cycling Tour – a challenge for any cyclist to complete in six weeks!

Lance Armstrong and his companions took only three weeks cycling an average speed of 39km/hr to ride the Tour de France in 2000. It will be a challenge for any cyclist to complete this ride in six weeks!

We begin the tour in Poitiers in mid June and finish in Paris at the end of July – just one day before the arrival of the real TDF. The atmosphere on the Champs-Elysees on the final day is always amazing and we will be there! To complete the tour you will also ride the Champs-Elysees to congratulate yourself on this ‘once in a lifetime achievement’!

Our tour is not a race, however you have the opportunity to challenge yourself while having a holiday. Experience the French lifestyle and visit the many places of interest. Each day we aim to be at your next hotel by 2pm, giving you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the area. You may also choose not to ride some stages and use the day for more sightseeing stops.

Along the ride, a french holiday!

Our Tour de France cycling tour is not a race, but you still have the opportunity to challenge yourself while having a holiday where you can experience the French lifestyle and visit the many places of interest. Each day we aim to be at your next hotel by 2pm, giving you plenty of time to chill out and explore the area. Plus you may choose not to ride some stages and use the day for more sightseeing stops instead! We have also included a total of 6 rest days, including two consecutive days in Aix-en Provence (see the attached document). During this long holiday, you will cross many of France's regions, starting from the west side, travelling south to the mountains and then the Mediterranean, before heading north via the continental east side of the country!

Come for a ride, or just enjoy the view

Please enquire about available places for sightseeing passengers only. We'll stay in cosy hand-picked 2–4 star hotels and lodges. Join Global Adventure Guide for an exhilarating adventure you'll never forget.
