Enjoy the spectacle of the Tour de France, ride the classic cols and savour the amazing atmosphere

Bagneres de Luchon - A Pyrenean Gem:

With between 10 and 12 million spectators watching the Tour de France each year from over 40 countries it is no wonder that the Peak Times Le Tour Special is by far our most popular event each year.  For over 10 years our guests have enjoyed the amazing spectacle close up, usually from an enviable position on a key Col with full road side catering. 


Historically significant, holding the departure for the very first mountain stage of the Tour de France in 1910, Bagneres de Luchon has hosted the Tour on a regular basis, and with over 50 stages either arriving or departing from Luchon, we can almost guarantee that the Tour is always close by. Each year we and our guests can usually experience at least one stage of the Tour, and quite often two or even three.


Our very competitively priced Tour de France Holiday packages represent great value, and our experience in hosting clients on the mountain, and riding the classic cols of the Tour for over 10 years ensures the quality of your holiday. So why not come and enjoy the Tour yourself, great accommodation, superb catering, a fun and relaxed atmosphere, and more importantly great riding.

Watching the Tour de France 2016

Follwing last year's amazing spectacle of fierce and competitive riding in the Pyrenees, we are happy once again to be able to offer our guests another challenging stage during the 2017 Tour de France.


Pau - Peyragudes (13th July) will undoubtedly be the key Pyrenean stage, and with a new and unique arrival on the Altiport at Peyragudes, it will certainly test the legs of both the pro riders taking part, but also our guests that will ride the key cols of this tough stage.


The atmosphere will be incredible, the riding will include some of the most famous cols of the Tour, and the overall experience will hopefully leave you with fantastic memories.

Our 2017 Le Tour Special, will provide you with not only the opportunity to ride the principle cols of the 2017 Pau - Peyragudes stage, but also to enjoy the heady atmosphere of the greatest cycling show on earth close up.

So why not join us, enjoy quality accommodation, amazing catering, a very personal "hands on" service, all combined with the warm welcome that the Pyrenees provides.

Itinerary:

As usual Peak Times will be right in the heart of the action, where our riding guests will watch stage 12 from a fantastic vantage point on one of the key cols. Having enjoyed the challenge of a morning climb, a hot and cold buffet lunch will be available at our road side camp, where guests can soak up the atmosphere of the Tour, enjoying the buzz of the publicity caravan in preparation for the arrival of the first riders and the peloton.


In addition to the Tour, our guests can opt to test their stamina and resolve with our fully supported "Assassins Challenge". The route for this fully supported ride day aimed at testing the legs of all participants' changes each year, and is largely based on a key tour stage. There is also the opportunity to explore some of the lesser know but stunning climbs as part of our 2nd fully supported ride day.
