Sportive Breaks About Us page - Etape du Tour 2023

With you for the ride.

Sportive Breaks launched in 2015 with the innovative travel idea to collate all the best hotels for cyclists centred around European Sportives and Gran Fondos.

Not long after, Sportive Breaks launched the ‘perfect long weekend’ for cyclists with a range of four-night trips in four iconic destinations synonymous with cycling: Alpe d’Huez, Mont Ventoux, Lake Como and the Pyrenees. The trips, dubbed ‘The Perfect Long Weekend’, follow the same formula, with intrepid riders arriving on Wednesday and going on to enjoy four days in the saddle, taking in a combination of classic cols and local favourites.

From the 5 Monuments (Milan Sanremo, Lombardia, Roubaix, LBL and Flanders) to the Big Six (Marmotte, UCI Gran Fondo World Championships, Gran Fondo Stelvio Santini, Etape du Tour, Nove Colli and Mallorca 312) and many more.
