Want to ride the Tour de France route before the peloton? Here are some recommended cycling holidays based around the Tour de France.
We'll keep adding this page with 2018 Tour de France cycling holidays as they coem to hand.
Carcassonne and the Pyrenees stages
Veloroo Tour de France Tour
Julia and Steve at the Franco-Australian road bike specialists VeloRoo have put together a super Tour de France trip that will take you from the turrets of Carcassonne and the Millau Viaduct through to the peaks of the Pyrenees. It's the complete package and includes 8 nights' accommodation in boutique hotels, guided riding and support car. Rides and stages include the Col de Portet, Col de Tentes, and the showcase Lourdes to Laruns stage on July 27 that features the Tourmalet. Price includes cycling bib shorts, jersey and gloves (plus daily washing), all breakfasts, all lunches and all dinners (except on the Carcassonne rest day when you will want to indulge in local specialites!) All you have to do is ride (and cheer). This is a personalised tour so numbers are limited (it sold out in 2016 and 2017). Non-cycling partners welcome (there will be a support car for you!) Price in dollars but also payable in euro.
Full details here.
We'll add more options as they come to hand – in the meantime, you can also use my bespoke service and I'll find a Tour de France race viewing tour that suits you.
