Cycling Holidays France - The French Alps are a main destination of cyclists. With all the epic battles fought here, over the moutainous stages of the Tour de France, it is no wonder that every cyclist wants to ride the same routes. For most of our customers these trips are the main focus of their cycling year. It’s a chance to test yourself on the same climbs that your Tour heroes compete on, (and even compare your times if you wish!). You’ll want these trips to be challenging but achievable, so we will tailor the trip to your requirements. Let us know what you want to do and we’ll arrange it for you.
We have a selection of different tours from routes focussing on the Stage finish climbs, both in the North and Southerns Alps, that allow you to choose how much you want to do each day to the more challenging RAID Alpine and for 2013 we have a new trip riding the 3 Alpine Stages of the 2013 Tour over 6 days to make it a manageable and enjoyable holiday.
We know these climbs inside out and we'll help you make the very best of your cycling holiday; France is a brilliant place to cycle, the scenery is stunning and the roads were paved for 2 wheels!
