If cycling London’s streets isn’t challenging or exotic enough for you, our friends at Vaidas Bicycles have something exciting on offer for the adventurous cyclist with aspirations of Tour de France proportions.
Whisking you off to the picturesque alpine village of St Jean Maurienne, the seven day Legendary Cols Tour gives you the opportunity to tackle some of the most iconic climbs of the Tour de France, with all the support you need to do it. Obviously you need a reasonable level of fitness and a decent bout of determination, but Vaidas will be with you every step of the way (providing tea, coffee and smiles whenever you need them!)
This epic bike trip covers a total distance of 250km, while climbing a lofty 7160m. You will take on the iconic Col Du Telegraphe and Col Du Galibier after a warm up day on the 1st Cat Col Du Grand Cucheron. There will be the chance to test yourself against the pros on the Alpe D’Huez time trial and for the determined rider the 5th day gives you the opportunity to tackle the Queen stage, a 61km loop climbing over 2000m!
As you can see it’s not for the faint hearted, but your safety is paramount and Vaidas will support you all the way. Every day there’ll be a minimum of one support rider and one support vehicle, to make sure you have all the assistance you need during your rides.
