Velocene Grand Tour 2020
The Velocene Grand Tour concept is inspired by the 1972 Tour de France.
We are offering you a perfect loop around France, with no transfer miles! Ride your bike all the way, from hotel to hotel.
This way, you can concentrate on riding, recovering, and enjoying! We think this is the best way for club riders and serious amateur cyclists, and we keep adding improvements based on our experience of running this tour.
The route combines the classic Grand Tour cols in the Alps and the Pyrenees with many of the lesser known spectacular climbs and cycling areas that France has to offer, from the Médoc to Burgundy or the Jura to Languedoc. Fresh back from this year’s running, we know will not disappoint!
We think this is the challenge of a lifetime for cycling enthusiasts, and we know, like any great personal achievement, it requires, training, determination and a respect for the task ahead – but we know it is highly achievable, and that the challenge, camaraderie and team work is part of the fun!
We will provide support and advice in the lead up to the tour, and with our logistical planning and support on the road, we’ll take all the stress out of the ride, so all you need to focus on is enjoying your cycling!
