2 day guided ride

215 km

Fully supported with medic, vehicles, drivers, all food and accommodation



Travel out to Paris and meet the pie crew at the pre-event hotel. Registration & safety briefings will take place tonight before the evening meal. Of course, we’ll transport your bikes from the UK to Paris for you in advance of the ride.


Day 1

After a hearty breakfast, we head out in our guided groups and hit the road. Following the official route as much as possible, we pass fields of wheat and enter the French countryside. The Paris-Tours pro race is known as one of the quickest on the calendar, as long as the wind is behind you!

We’ll provide morning and afternoon refreshment stops, along with lunch during the day, keeping you well fuelled for the ride.

We stop overnight in Vendôme, with it’s beautiful Abbey and medieval buildings providing the backdrop to a wonderful evening meal.

Day 2

We continue our journey south towards Tours.  Again, you’ll ride in your guided groups, meaning you don’t need to worry about navigation or mechanicals. Our guides and support crew take care of that!

Save some energy for the final few kms – there is a bit of a sting in the tail, with a series of hills to conquer as we enter Tours at the end of the day. You’ll toast your success that evening at a wonderful celebration meal.

Day 3 

Travel home. Your bikes will be transported back to the UK, ready for your arrival. Of course, you are welcome to extend your stay and explore the local area. Tours is known as the gateway for exploring the stunning chateaux of the Loire Valley region!
