Cyclo Sportive & Gran Fondo Holidays for 2018 - L'Etape du Tour, La Marmotte,
Gran Fondo Milan San-Remo, Paris-Roubaix Challenge and More

Cyclo Sportives are mass-participation, semi competitive cycling events over challenging terrain.

The best known is the Etape du Tour which gives you the chance to test yourself on the actual route of one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France.

With interest growing each year in these types of events, we have extended our programme of Cyclo sportive holidays for 2018, which now includes events in France, Italy, Spain, The USA, and the UK.

A recent innovation are multi stage sportive events such as the Haute Route series. These events are the nearest an amatuer rider can come to the full Pro rider experience of riding a stage race.

Our programme of 2018 cyclo sportives includes:
