Your Experience

Combine riding in the stunning French Alps with watching the pro riders taking on the famous Criterium du Dauphine! You will ride some of the famous Tour de France climbs whilst taking in the stunning mountain scenery. On day three our route will take us up the mighty Col de la Loze, which featured in the 2023 Tour de France and defined the race. 

The Criterium du Dauphine is famously known as a pre-cursor to the Tour. Whilst the race is held in high stature itself, it often shows who is in the best form heading into the big one the following month. By riding the same roads as the pros, this unique tour can be used as an early summer training camp. This trip is situated in a stunning part of the French Alps and allows you to ride some epic climbs. Mike, your expert guide for this tour, lives local to the area and has chosen the best roads and climbs the area has to offer.

Minimum numbers

At Sportive Breaks virtually all our trips are guaranteed to run. Some of our guided cycling tours, warm weather cycling weeks and weekenders however require a minimum number of participants to enable us to operate them. 

We reserve the right to cancel any holiday where this minimum number is not achieved. You will be advised before your booking is accepted of the minimum number applicable to your holiday unless the trip is already guaranteed to run. Failure to achieve the applicable minimum number does not, however, oblige us to cancel.
