Our Tour

July each year signals Tour de France time and announce it’s summer. It’s a beautiful time to visit and ride in France. We’ll show you the smaller roads, charming villages and stay in chic French hotels.

It’s with out a doubt the best time to visit France, the villages, the big cities all come to life to the sights, sounds and festivities of the Tour de France.

There’s something beautiful about riding a bike in France in the sun drenched summer, the terrain is almost purpose-built for cyclists who love panoramic climbs, sweeping views and lakeside roads, it’s stunning.

France has been our base for the past ten cycling seasons, we know it like the back of our hand, we’ve spent much of that time running speciality cycling trips and tours. We’ve hosted groups to all of France’s beautiful regions, ridden all the best roads, mountains and we’ll show you the best of France on our 14 Day Tour.

We love everything about France, the people, it’s culture, it’s beautiful food, wine, the history, the outdoors, the mountains and it’s love for the biggest sporting event in the world.

We’re looking forward to showing you around France, the Pyrenees, Provence, the Alps, Paris and the 2019 Tour de France.

Ciao Pat, Grace and the Team
