The Tour de France (TDF) starts with visualizing outstanding. Why? Because the best of the best compete each year in the most epic cyclist event in the world. Imagine standing side by side with people from all over the world, cheering for your favorite cyclists or just tackling one of your favorite wines.
We put our entire focus on delivering a style of vacation that changes lives.
On the bike we’ll ride around stunning Lake Annecy, see gorgeous views and and climb some of the most famous mountains in Europe (Alpe d’Huez, Madeleine, Forclaz). We have both guides and GPS units so you can ride as much or as little as you desire.
Off the bike we’ll visit a team hotel, see behind-the-scenes of the TDF where few people are allowed to enter. We’ve reserved an entire house on the lake so and we’re bringing in our own chefs, just like the pro teams.
Meet locals – Collect autographs or photos at the Tour de France – Ride famous mountain climbs – Taste great local wines.
Here’s what makes us different:
