 Tour de France - Alps & Paris

Final Week - 8 days & 6 TDF stages

Via Nîmes (stage 16) and Gap (stage 17) La Grande Boucle continues to the Alps. Valloire hosts the first mountain stage in the last week of action – stage 18. The mountain village lies close to the summit of the Col du Télégraphe and at the foot of the Col du Galibier, which is the last climb before a descent to the line. The Télégraphe is left alone, but the Col de Vars and the Col d’Izoard are included.

Stage 19 finishes uphill in ski resort Tignes, while the Col de l’Iseran will be the penultimate climb. Possibly, the finale begins in Lanslebourg before the riders climb in 32.9 kilometes to the summit of the Iseran. The average gradient is 4.2%, yet the last 3 kilometres are marked by double digit ramps. Following a descent to Val d’Isère the route rises to Lake Chevril – 7.4 kilometres at 7% – before the last 2 kilometres are a false flat.

Val Thorens is set to act as the climax in the fight for the yellow jersey. At 2,300 metres, Europe’s highest ski resort has only ever hosted one Tour de France finish. In 1994, Colombian Nelson Rodriguez climbed to victory on the horse catégorie slopes.

Of course, the 2019 Tour de France finishes on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The 21st stage will set off in Rambouillet.

The final week of the 2019 Tour de France means Alps mountains and the traditional exciting end to the world's greatest sporting event on the boulevards of Paris.


Monday, July 22nd : Meetings point at Marseille International Airport, Avignon TGV-station or at our hotel in Avignon.

  • Go4Cycling provides flexible meetings points to match your travel itinerary:
    • 11 am: Marseille International Airport and transfer to our hotel in Avignon.
    • 2 pm: Avignon TGV-train station and transfer to our hotel in Avignon.
    • 3 pm: In case you arrive ealier in France you can book an extra night at our hotel in Avignon and meet us at the lobby (hotel details can be requested by email).
  • After the check-in we will start with the fitting of our world-class rental bikes (BMC). For those bringing their own bikes, our staff will help to assist with assembling your bike.
  • Later in the afternoon we will have a short bike ride (bike fitting) in the region.
  • Welcome dinner included: The itinerary and the program for the following days will be explained.
  • We will spend the next 2 nights near Avignon (Department Vaucluse).

Tuesday, July 23rd: Stage 16 Tour de France "Nîmes - Nîmes"

  • The day’s TDF-loop will be entirely taking place in the departement of Gard and the peloton will have the very special privilege of riding on the Pont du Gard. The escapees that will show up on the famous Roman viaduct should be under the careful scrutiny of the bunch. A bunched sprint in Nîmes is likely.
  • After breakfast we check out and we will make a loop ride while we intercept the course of today. Here we will watch the race along the Tour de France route.

Wednesday, July 24th: Stage 17 Tour de France "Pont du Gard – Gap"

  • Today we will transfer from Department Vaucluse into the "Hautes Alpes" department. First we will see the riders at the start of todays stage in Pont du Gard. 
  • After the start we will drive to Bourg d'Oissans. After a warm-up on the straight roads of the Oisans valley, we will reach the foot of the famous ascent of Alpe d'Huez. 
  • Alpe d'Huez and the 21 hairpin turns remain the most challenging and well known stage of the Tour de France. Each of the 21 turns are marked to help cyclists count-down the 9 miles, and 3,670ft of elevation difference, with an average slope of 7.9 %.
  • Alpe d'Huez will be our home base for the next 3 nights.

Thursday, July 25th: Stage 18 Tour de France "Embrun – Valloire"

  • The TDF climbers will have an opportunity to express their talent in the high mountains of this first big Alpine stage where they’ll be above 2000 metres in altitude in three different locations… which is extremely rare on a stage for the Tour de France. For the occasion, the day will include climbs up Vars, the Izoard and the Galibier!
  • We will leave our hotel by bike and climb to the top of Col du Lautaret where we will intercept the course. Once the riders passed our viewing location we will ride back to Bourg d'Oisans with our bikes.
  • Those who want can climb for the 2nd time Alpe d'Huez and try to improve their previous time.

Friday, July 26th: Stage 19 Tour de France "Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne – Tignes"

  • Stage 19 to Tignes is again a short one at 123km but includes the 2770m high Col d’Iseran - 12.9km at 7.5 per cent - which is the highest pass in Europe. The lack of oxygen will make it feel far steeper and test the overall contenders before the descent down the Val d’Isère. The Tour de France has climbed the Col d’Iseran seven times but this will be only the second time via the harder south side. The stage finish is above Tignes, with a final 7.4km climb at 7 per cent, again over the 2000m mark.
  • We will drive to the start in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. Once the race is off we will start our challenge ride to the top of Col du Galibier (2642m)Before even starting Galibier, it’s necessary to climb the Col du Telegraph – and ascent of almost (840 metres). This is a category 1 climb (the second hardest rating) and averaging 7% for 12 kms. After Telegraph there is a 5 km descent into the ski resort of Valloire. From Valloire to climb to the top of Galibier is about 18km.

Saturday, July 27th: Stage 20 Tour de France "Albertville – Val Thorens"

  • After breakfast we will check out and drive to the top of Col du Glandon. From here we will descent to La Chambre and start to climb the mythical Col de la Madeleine for about 19km. 
  • Relentless is probably the most accurate word, which must be used to describe this climb. The gradient never gives the legs a break as even the ‘easy’ sections are around 6% and the tougher ones over 10%. After the decent we will intercept the race route and watch the race at the Côte de Longefoy.
  • The Côte de Longefoy is climbed for the first time in the history of the Tour de France and the technical descent towards Moutiers will be as equally as testing.
  • After the race has passed, we will load our minibus and drive to Lyon where we will spend the night. 

Sunday, July 28th: Stage 21 Tour de France "Finish Paris (Champs-Élysées)"

  • After breakfast we assist you and take the TGV from Lyon to Paris. 
  • The traditional final laps around the Arc de Triomphe--the last act of the 2019 Tour de France-- will be quite prestigious. Riders and watching fans will have the chance to discover new areas of the capital as they rocket past.  The question is whether the new route will impede the plans of sprinters for a final shot at glory on the Champs!
  • Farewell diner included and we will spend 1 night at our hotel in Paris.

Monday, July 29th: Goodbye from Go4Cycling - Transfer to Paris TGV train station or international airport (CDG) 

  • Our Tour-trip concludes after breakfast. We will assist you with connections to the TGV train station or the Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG) in Paris
  • Then it is “Au Revoir” from Go4Cycling until the next time!

BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

 

The Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France (Yell Cadel!), the Olympics (Greg VA!), World Championships (Fast Phil!), and grueling Classics. Despite its success, BMC has not been resting on their laurels: to stand still means being overtaken – to remain at the top, even the best must evolve. The new Teammachine pushes the boundaries of advanced cycling technology. Its creation has been all-encompassing. The result is the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling: the world’s raciest balance of light weight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximal integration and Swiss design; a jet on wheels.

Your bike will be fitted with disk brakes, with the latest 2018 electronic shimano ultegra di2 shifting with a 50/34 front and 11/28 rear cassette giving you the right gear at the speed of light. The 40mm high-profile carbon DT swiss wheelset is mounted with 25mm clincher tires to offer you the lowest rolling resistance.

The SLR01 is available in sizes 54 - 56 - 58.

BMC Roadmachine RM01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

BMC Roadmachine RM01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

Who said you couldn’t have it all? The Roadmachine challenges the traditional road bike categories. From axle to axle, this bicycle delivers sleek, integrated technologies and hints at free speed from every angle. Brilliant pedaling efficiency and the ideal level of compliance for legendary long days of riding leave you with no doubts; this bike has it all.

The roadmachine 01 is an all but perfect bicylce. It’s a study in what road bikes for the non-racer are becoming: disc-equipped, light and compliant, fully integrated and versatile, thanks tot the tire clearance. It is one of the most striking bikes that BMC has ever produced.

Your bike will be fitted with disk brakes, with the latest 2018 electronic shimano ultegra di2 shifting with a 50/34 front and 11/28 rear cassette giving you the right gear at the speed of light. The light carbon 3T wheelset is mounted with 28mm clincher tires for added riding comfort.


The Roadmachine is available in sizes 58 - 56 & 54.

BMC SLR03 Shimano 105

BMC SLR03 Shimano 105

With an identical racing inspired geometry as the team machine 01, the 03 is an allround carbon racer that cannot hide its origins from the bike that stormed Philippe Gilbert to his world championship title or Cadel Evans to win the Tour de France.

Your bike will be fitted with rim brakes and a solid shimano 105 groupset with a compact 50/34 front chainring and 11/28 rear cassette in order to be able to tackle the steepest ‘cols’ or ‘cime’ that will cross your path during your journey.

The shimano wheelset is mounted with all round 25mm clincher tires.


BMC teammachine SLR03  - Shimano 105 is vailable in sizes 47 - 51 - 54 - 57.
