Tour de France Weekender with Sportive Breaks

The Sportive Breaks Cycling Weekender is a four-night trip for avid amateur sports cyclists to iconic cycling destinations such as Alpe d’Huez, Mont Ventoux, Mallorca, Calpe, the Dolomites, the Stelvio and the French Alps.
This is the perfect long weekend for avid amateur cyclists and the same tried and tested formula can be expected in each destination. All weekenders are hosted by local riders and in Italy you can even ride with a former Giro d’Italia stage winner! Riders arrive on Wednesday and go on to enjoy 4 to 5 days in the saddle, taking in a combination of classic world-renowned cols and climbs made famous by the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana. We also introduce some undiscovered climbs favoured by local riders.

TDF Weekender

The Tour de France Weekender allows you to experience Tour de France favourites like the Cormet de Roselend, Col de L’Iseran and the new (recently tarmacked) Col de la Loze, a key feature of the 2021 Tour de France. As a small treat we will nip into Italy across the Col du Petit Saint Bernard for the ultimate coffee ride.

Should you wish us to arrange a private transfer for you (at your own cost) from Geneva, Lyon or any other airport to Brides-les-Bains, please contact us on +44 (0) 161 676 0390 |  [email protected]

After breakfast at the hotel we will head out on our first ride. Appearing 13 times (and most recently in stage 17 of the 2023 Tour de France where Felix Gall went on to win the stage), the Cormet de Roseland is a stunning climb to start the trip with. The ascent is covered over 20.3km, but with an average gradient of 6% you are able to take in the stunning views as you climb to the top. 

Dinner will be at the hotel in the evening.

Today’s ride: 120km. Elevation: 2100m

Read our Cormet de Roselend guide

On day 3 you will ride the Col de la Loze – famous for being known as the hardest bike climb in France. Getting to the top will earn you some serious kudos! Featuring twice in the Tour de France as a HC climb, once in 2020 on stage 17 and again as the summit finish in the 2023 tour on stage 17, where Jonas Vinegaard dropped Tadej Pagcar, effectively winning the race. 

Today’s ride: 120km. Elevation: 2500m 

The route on day 4 will take us up the Col de I’Iseran, the highest paved pass in the Alps! First showcased on the Tour de France in 1938, it has been included 7 times since. In 2019 on stage 19, this is where Egan Bernal made a famous attack over the top of the Iseran, before the race was neutralised on the descent due to a hailstorm. At the top you will enjoy breath-taking views. 

In the evening we will enjoy a final meal together and celebrate the weeks’ achievements. 

Today’s ride: 100km. Elevation: 2600m

After breakfast we will have a gentle warm down ride towards Petit St Bernard. Our mechanic will be on hand to assist packing your bike away.

We will then run a transfer back to Lyon airport in the afternoon. 


Please consider the two-hour transfer time to Geneva Airport together with the 2-hour check-in requirement. Please book return flights that depart after 19:00pm from Geneva Airport.



Should you wish us to arrange a private transfer for you (at your own cost) from Geneva, Lyon or any other airport to Brides-les-Bains, please contact us on +44 (0) 161 676 0390 |  [email protected]
