The Tour de France and 'Les Alpes'; it is impossible to think of one without the other. L'Alpe d'Huez, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col de la Madeleine, Col du Galibier - the list goes on and on. These are the passes on which the Tour de France is contested, the roads where champions are made. Our tour is where any cyclist can imagine riding in the peloton of their heroes. Yet our tour is even more than the Tour de France; it is a cycling experience unmatched anywhere in the world. This is a tour of breathtaking vistas of mountains, meadows, and lakes; of the cliffs and gorges of the Vercors; of mountain villages with their festive markets, friendly hotels, and delicious food and wine.

And, ultimately, this is a tour of roads - France's special gift to the cyclist; roads laid down like a carelessly strewn ribbon, narrow roads painstakingly chiseled into the sides of vertical cliffs, roads virtually devoid of cars, roads plastered with the names of cycling legends, roads climbing steeply and relentlessly toward heart throbbing heights, and of course roads plummeting downwards in rim-searing, thrilling, twisty descents to distant villages below.
