Tour de France 2017

      Join us for Our Tour de France week. 

      Sat 15th - Sat 22nd 2017

      A unique Tour de France package to see and ride Stage 16 and Stage 17 of this years Tour. 

      Soak up the colour and atmosphere of a stage sprint finish at Romans-sur-Isere riding directly from our base, climb the mythical Col de la Croix de Fer in the Alps and spend the rest of the time exploring the Spectacular Vercors.

      Our week also includes a fully supported day trip to climb the iconic Alp d'Huez


      Stage 16 - Le Puy-en-Velay - Romans-sur-Isere

      Christian Prudhomme's comment

      The roads of the day are perfectly known by the amateur riders of the Ardéchoise cyclosportive, with a topography that could give confidence to breakaway riders. But finishes in the Rhône Valley often end up with bunched sprints… unless the wind plays a role. 

      Stage 17 - La Mure / Serre-Chevalier

      Christian Prudhomme's comment

      Climbers battling it out for the Yellow Jersey will have two more days to express themselves, to change the outcome or comfort a decent lead and gain precious time. Heading towards Serre-Chevalier, we will give them the most prestigious of what the Alps has to offer: the Col de la Croix de Fer and then the Galibier back after a 6-year absence, going up the Télégraphe. It's now up to them.
