The last week of the Tour de France will be returning to the Pyrenees. It’s been over 3 years now since the Tour finished with Pyrenean mountain stages and a rare occasion for us to spend some time in the French Pais Basque green pasture mountains.
We will start this southern France journey with a couple days in the pink cité of Toulouse riding the Midi-Pyrenées followed with five days in the Basque Pyrénées including an individual time trial in the famous commune of Espelette. As usual, we will go celebrate the grand finale on the Champs Elysées. Don't miss on joining us for a another Steve Bauer Bike Tours Signature Experience in following one of the greatest sport event in the world.
