Challenging Cycling tours for Avid Riders

As former racers we understand the euphoric rush of pushing oneself to the physical limit from the saddle of a bike. It is from this understanding that our Elite Tours were born. They are specifically designed for serious bicyclists. And by serious, we mean bicyclists who want to ride like racers during the day, but relax like tourists at night; cyclists who find cruising across the countryside at a 12 MPH pace so unacceptable that they are most likely to write on postcards to less gung-ho riding friends, "Glad you are not here."

Our Elite Tours offer complete flexibility of length and region. If you want to challenge yourself in the French Alps, in the Pyrenees, in the Dolomites, in Provence or in Catalonia--no problem. If you want to pedal long distances through rolling wine country--no problem. Tour options abound, including whether you want guided or self-guided (and/or if you want a regimented "training week" for toning the legs into competitive riding shape.)

We also offer mass cycling events (cyclosportives and Gran Fondo) as part of our Elite Tour packages. These popular events are perfect for those who want to experience the adrenaline-surge of a real race with thousands of other international riders. Our status as an Official Tour Operator for L'Etape du Tour and La Marmotte confirms our knowledge and standing in these events.

Do also keep in mind that we organize custom tours in France, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland for groups of 6 and more. These can be guided or self-guided. You may view a few of the many tours we've organized. To get started, just fill out our online form.
