Ride the Route! Tour de France Bike Tour
Please note that the 2020 Tour de France Bike Ride will take place on Sunday, September 20th!
Get up early on the biggest cycling day of the year and join our Paris Bike Tour on the final day of the Tour de France (Sunday September 20, 2020)! Ride the nearly empty streets as our guides lead you along the famous cobblestone roads of the last leg of the 3-week trek. See the same sites as the professional riders as they speed around the middle of Paris, just a few hours after you!
We will begin at our office, 24 rue Edgar Faure, 75015, and head directly to the Champs Elysées where the bulk of this ride will take place. Getting an early start grants us access to streets that will be too busy to navigate later on when the event is in full swing. Allow our guides to navigate through the streets as the city is waking up, with hints of pastries and coffee beginning to linger in the air. We’ll make our way to the final stretch of the biggest and most celebrated cyclist event in history. Ride over the same cobblestones as the cycling world champions, and imagine yourself wearing the yellow jersey! Feel the excitement as crowds start to line the streets in anticipation of an 8-lap finalé just a few hours away. They will be cheering for you as you cruise up and down this beautiful avenue, flanked by French flags and a buzz in the air.
You’ll have an opportunity to ride portions of the Champs Elysées, including the usually hectic round-about circling the Arc de Triomphe. Stop for a quick glass of bubbly at the apex of the course, and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Triumphal Way which connects much of the right bank of Paris into a stunningly symmetric landscape. Continue through the sleepy streets as the sun rises, and make your way back towards our office for our own grand finalé: coffee & croissants in front of the Eiffel Tower. Our staff will be there to be your personal photographers and capture this once-in-a-lifetime moment. We’re happy to provide you with a few optional itineraries for the rest of your day and clue you in about the best viewing spots for later in the evening.
