About the trip

This Private & Custom 7-day tour, organized for a group of friends from Manchester UK, is OPEN to a few additional like-minded guests. If you’ve always wanted to test your form on the most famous Tour de France climbs, from a convenient “home base” without the stress of daily hotel changes, this is your chance! As the group is only 4-6 persons in total, they are welcoming a few more guests to join them on this bike trip in the French Alps. Some of the group have already completed several epic adventures with HC Bike Tours. Contact us to see if this trip would be a good fit for you!
