Tour de France

14th-21st July 2019

Holiday Overview

The Tour de France is the ideal opportunity to combine an alpine cycling holiday with a bucket list item and watch the world’s elite riders take part in the iconic Tour de France.

Based in the heart of the Savoie and Haute Savoie region, your TAG Ride holiday gives you the opportunity to take part in daily rides and explore some of the most famous cols in the area.  All rides are paced to ensure everyone works within their capabilities and goals.

We combine these daily rides with the opportunity to join the Tour as a spectator; soak up the atmosphere, watch the famous caravan pass through and cheer the riders on!
