Trips for the race fan

We have tours designed to cater for both spectators and non-cycling partners.

Spectator Tours

If you are a fan of “Le Tour” but don’t want a cycling tour, then our spectator tours are tailored for you. Our small group experience follows the Tour de France and includes an afternoon as a VIP on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. As with all of our tours we look after all the details, so you can enjoy our hospitality.

You’ve watched the Tour de France on TV, but nothing beats the experience of seeing it live!

Tour de France, Paris Roubaix and other events on request
  • Small group
  • VIP hospitality included
  • Experience some of the world’s great sport events, the Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix
  • Visit some of the most beautiful areas of France
  • See the Tour de France or Paris-Roubaix, but without riding it!
  • Dedicated guide for non-cyclists

Please note: Some walking will be involved during the tour to be able to view some of the race stages, particularly on the climbs. The amount of walking involved is suitable for any person of average fitness and health. Walking to get to the race route is necessary for you to get the most out of your tour and we do everything within our control to ensure a comfortable trip for you at all times.

Non-Cyclist Tours

We accept non cyclists on most of our cycling trips.

  • Ideal for cyclist partners or cycling enthusiasts
  • Diverse itinerary involving the race, history, culture, meeting up with riders and picturesque areas
  • Travel off the regular tourist route to experience the best culture, cuisine and scenery
  • We provide non cycling suggestions in your daily itinerary and, where possible, we will assist with sightseeing options

Primarily we design itineraries for cyclists to ride through beautiful roads, landmark climbs and experience the thrill of the cycling races. They are also fun for non-riders and spectators, a cycling enthusiast at heart.

We often include sightseeing options suitable for both cyclists and non cyclists, perhaps a winery or chateau visit. Check each trip itinerary for opportunities to spend more time with your cycling partner and friends you make during the trip.

During the day it is often possible for non cyclists to travel in our coach or support van and meet up with the cyclists at a point during their ride. Our cycling routes often take the most scenic route between locations, so our non-cyclists gain a similar experience and share in the camaraderie found among riders. Our designated meeting location is often on the race route or in an interesting town, so there are normally things to see and do for a non cyclist, especially if you have an interest in watching a bike race!

We include dinners on a number of nights on each tour, including welcome and farewell dinners. These are a great chance for the whole group to get to know each other off the bike and enjoy each others company.

We may on occasions designate certain tours for “cyclists only” if we feel that it is unsuitable for non cyclists – please check trip details to see whether it has been marked as suitable for non cyclists before you proceed.

Please note: The health and safety of our cyclists take priority in the way we plan our tours. Therefore, our staff are mostly dedicated to looking after the cyclist’s needs. This does not mean that non cyclists are forgotten – but simply that on occasions, patience is required in situations where we may need to alter our plans to suit the needs of cyclists.
