Enjoy your own two-wheeled feel of history-in-the-making by joining this tour and cycle key segments of the Tour de France 2018 route mere hours before the pros take to the road.

This is the kind of a ride that will make your dreams of winning the Yellow Jersey seem just one turn of the wheels closer as we take you on a historic six-day ride that includes infamous climbs in the Pyrenees such as Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aubisque and many more.

The riding party is limited to just seven so it retains that special feel, alongside your experienced guides and the tour’s founder, who will join you for the duration of the tour. Of course, no tour would be complete without the chance to watch the Tour de France 2018, but more on that later. First let’s get riding.

Having breathed in the beautiful scenery on your arrival day in Toulouse, the second day will instantly challenge you with a climb on Col de Peyresourde. Spectacular views will greet you after gaining an elevation of 3,704 meters (10,085 ft).

Another day brings another legendary climb with the Col du Tourmalet – a veteran of the Tour having appeared 81 times. Now is your chance to make history and take it on, but don’t worry; coffee will be waiting for you once you’ve completed it.

Day three and five lets you witness the Tour live. Having climbed Col d’Aubisque, you can kick back in the exclusive viewing area and enjoy a picnic as the pros take on Stage 19. It is moments like this that make for a one in a million high-class cycling experience.
