Women's Tour de France Adventure

We are delighted to offer this first of its kind bike trip to the 2023 Tour de France Femmes.

We commence our adventure in the rich Aveyron region, known for its produce, cheeses and truffles. By bike, we discover the unique landscapes then treat ourselves to local cuisine by night. We’ll pedal from our hotel and see stages 4 and 5. Then, we take advantage of Discover France’s official tour operator status and go behind the scenes into the VIP Departure Village for Stage 6 in Albi. Next, we head South into the Pyrenees to our hotel, located just outside of Bagnères-de-Bigorre. We’ll climb the formidable Col du Tourmalet in the early morning of July 29th, and take in the summit finish of the race’s queen stage. To finish it off in style, we’ll transfer to Pau on the tour’s last day to see the final Time Trial from our VIP hospitality tent at the finish line. This tour literally has it all.

There is no shortage of roads to choose from, but we have designed a ride that will allow us to discover the area by bike in the morning and then intersect with the Tour de France Femmes in the afternoon. Today’s stage will likely see plenty of fireworks from the riders and we’ll be right in the middle of the action! We will take our time and enjoy this incredible show we are lucky to behold.

Our goal is to intersect the TDFF riders as they pass through a series of very small roads that lie south of our hotel. We’ll enjoy a delicious French picnic at the hand our Discover France guides today, and then settle in to find our spot along the race route. After the peloton has passed, we’ll hop back on the bikes and enjoy another great ride back to our hotel. Once back at the hotel, take the time to relax before we meet for dinner in the hotel’s dining room.

Arriving in Bagnères-de-Bigorre you will understand the magnitude of where you are. Sitting in the shadows of the towering Col du Tourmalet, Bagnères-de-Bigorre is a famous base for cyclists around the world.

It’s a nice 10-mile warm up ride before we encounter the real climb of the day. The crowds on the road and the energy will be amazing. We’ll be cheered on by the thousands of fans parked on the side of the climb. The climb itself is about 11 miles long. Our goal will be to reach the summit and stake out a viewing spot. The atmosphere will be electric as we all wait for the riders to appear. It will be a sporting moment to remember as this classic TDFF Stage plays out. Once all of the riders have arrived at the summit, we’ll make our way down the hill by bike, and re-group back at the hotel to share our stories with one another!
