Join us for the world's biggest Grand Tour and come and ride every kilometre of this magnificent route one day ahead of the race! Grand Tours Project is an experienced tour operator and fully versed in delivering unforgettable tours, suitable for all passionate cyclists.

We are offering you the chance to create a ‘Ride Every Km’ tour during France’s 2021 premier bike race, an opportunity to ride the entire journey – every, single kilometre – with your friends. You can choose to ride 3, 6, 9 or even all 21 stages of the race.

You and your companions will need to be strong cyclists to achieve this challenge, but you don't need to be an elite athlete ... ours is a journey, not a race, and we'll leave enough time on each day to enjoy our lunch breaks and photo stops. Once we cross the finish line each day, we'll sit back and watch the race as it takes place in front of us.

To book a ‘Ride Every Kilometre’ Tour in France, we require a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 14 riders on each tour. We will organise the logistics of accommodation and meals and dependernt on numbers you’ll be supported by 1 or 2 expert guides and 1 or 2 drivers / mechanics. Your small group will ride together and will always have the support van nearby – with drinks, snacks and dry clothing.

Join us for a cycling holiday of a lifetime with your friends, riding this incredible challenge, makes this an unforgettable experience.

If this is a bit too challenging for you, then join us on one of our more relaxed "Experience" tours, as we ride 70-100km on each of the 6-9 stages of the Grand Tours. You will have more time to watch the race at the finish line, enjoy pool-side drinks at the hotel, and explore the village we're staying in each evening.

  • 2020 France WEEK 1 – Nice to Laruns


    10 Nights | 11 Days (Stage 1 - Stage 9)

    Nice, Provence…the Maritime Alpes…across to the southern Massif Centrale and then the Pyrenees.

    A mixture of terrain ranging from flat to hilly to mountain rides will ensure you are challenged and exposed to everything in Occitania – a linguistic region with the Mediterranean cultural and cuisine delights that is now southern France.

    Arrival: Nice
    Departure: Toulouse / Pau

  • 2020 France WEEK 2 – West to East

    sunday 5 july – SUNDAY 12 jULY

    7 Nights | 8 Days (Stage 10 – Stage 15)

    From the Atlantic fishing islands d’Oleron and Re in the Atlantic to Poitiers, flat but potentially windy; followed by the longest stage in hilly countryside from Chauvigny to Sarran; then back into the Massif Central for approximately 4400m of climbing and a mountain finish on Puy Mary Pas de Peyrol.Don’t relax as the next stage is 197km of fast flat terrain to Lyon, finished by Stage 15 mountain stage with killer ascents and another mountain finish on Grand Colombier!

    The 2nd week is not boring and definitely a test for endurance and speed through central France.

    Arrival Airport: Bordeaux / Nantes / Toulouse
    Departure Airport: Lyon / Geneva

  • 2020 France WEEK 3 – The Alps to the Jura to Paris

    sunday 12 July – Monday 20 July

    8 Nights | 9 Days (Stage 16 – Stage 21)

    The final week of this classic race and always epic. Mountains and more mountains before a flat sprint and the pressure of an individual time trial. This last week will be potentially nail biting.

    3 epic days of mountains through the Alps from La Tour du Pin and Grenoble to the famous Les Trois Vallees and then to La Roch-sur Foron, before crossing over to the flat stage beside the serene Jura mountains. One more climb in the ITT and we will have our winner.

    Finally the ride into Paris... And then it's your time to kick back and relax as you watch the pros ride in to Paris and celebrate your incedible acheivement with friends!

    Arrival Airport: Lyon / Geneva
    Departure Airport: Paris Charles de Gaulle
