Highlights from the Past Event

More About the Event

If you are interested in cycling the most famous Gran Fondo/ Sportive in the world, book your place on the Etape du Tour de France and ride one of the best mountain stages of the 2023 Tour de France. The 2023 route will again include awesome climbs in one of the world’s best cycling regions.

 

The first Etape du Tour took place in 1993, allowing amateur cyclists the opportunity to race over the same ground as the pros during the Tour de France. The roads are closed during this sportive, and refreshment stops can be expected along the way, replicating a stage of the Tour de France in every possible way. Our team on the ground are local to the area and have years of experience to ensure that you get the most out of your Etape du Tour experience with us.
