Your bucket-list Tour de France trip is here!

By December 14, 2016Cycling

The Tour de France is like no other race on the planet and as part of our calendar for the upcoming year we’ll be going right into the thick of it with Eat Sleep Cycle.

We’re talking the high Pyrenees in the height of summer where cyclists from all over the world come to tackle the most iconic climbs.

Our trip is a four-night package, leaving Girona on the morning of Tuesday July 11th and returning the following Saturday afternoon, July 15th.

We’ll base ourselves in the stunning spa town of Luchon, just over the border with Spain.

From there, we’ll climb the likes of the Col du Tourmalet, the Port de Bales, the Peyrsourde and the Portillon (and many more – details below).

We’ll watch the Tour from the roadside with thousands of (other!) screaming fans.

We’ll eat amazing food outdoors – think barbecues, crepes, cheese and chocolate!

We’ll ensure you have a comfortable, safe and enjoyable stay by supporting you throughout the week and we’ll keep the group small and closely-knit so as to guarantee the best service.
