What is L’Etape du Tour de France?

A sporting challenge, a tourist adventure. L’Etape du Tour de France was created for the fans and cyclists passionate about the biggest race. Every year, L’Etape du Tour de France invites the public to ride one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France: the same stage towns, the same route, the same mythical climbs but also, and above all, the same race conditions as on the Tour.


As the result of a significant amount of work carried out in partnership with the police, local organisations and local authorities, L’Étape du Tour de France is the only cycling event to offer routes which are entirely closed to traffic.

L'Etape du Tour de France was established in 1993 and since then, it has been riden in truly legend climbs and spots, such as Mont Ventoux, Alpe D’huez or Col du Tourmalet. With an average of 16 thousand riders each year, it is the biggest cycling event in the world. More info on this link: https://www.letapedutourdefrance.com/en/
