Due to overwhelming demand we're offering two tours to climb the classic cols of the Tour de France:
- TOUR 1: 16 June - 23 June 2013
- TOUR 2: 25 June - 2 July 2013 (FULL)
Our 2012 Pyrenees Smiddy Challenge was a huge success so we’re off to France again…this time to the high mountains of the French Alps. You’ll ride the classic climbs of the Tour de France, fully supported by an experienced tour operator.
Here’s a snapshot of your challenge:
- 700 kilometre, 5 stage route
- 10,000+ metres of climbing
- Tour classics such as Alpe D’Huez, Col du Galibier, Col de la Madeleine, Col du Grand Colombier and many more!
Each day you’ll be dwarfed by the magical Cols in the French Alps and challenged by a spectacular route designed exclusively for our tour.
Our French Alps Challenge will raise funds to support research into melanoma, breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. By participating in this tour you will be making a significant contribution to the work of researchers as they undertake potentially life-saving research into the causes, prevention and improved treatments of cancer.
