This trip is rated moderate to difficult, but if you want to ride less or take days off, we have options for you. We ride 40-60 miles per day and will be in hilly and mountainous terrain. Speed doesn’t matter, but it’s important for you to be comfortable in the saddle.
If your companion rides only a small amount we offer shorter rides. This can be a good trip for non-cyclists, if they are good walkers. We do everything we can to ensure that your TDF experience is positive.
We want to share our passion for cycling and the Tour de France!
