Alps, Tour de France, July 21th – July 27th 2019
If watching the pro peloton ride past on a pivotal climb of the 2019 Tour de France is on your bucket list, this trip is for you! We will be a part of the Tour on the climb of Col du Galibier. Feel the excitement as the riders pass right in front of you during what could be the decisive stage of next year’s tour!
Our home will be the Hotel Le Cassini in the beautiful village of Le Freney d’Oisans, which is surrounded by monumental alpine climbs. Along with viewing the Tour, we will do a little riding in the Alps ourselves: Alpe d’Huez and Col de Sarenne, Col du Sabot, and Villard-Notre-Dame, just to name a few. All are fantastic climbs with amazing views. Sophia, Maarten, and their wonderful staff at Le Cassini will fill our hungry stomachs and give us a place to rest at the end of each unforgettable day.
