As stated by Sam Moulton in a recent post about Europe bike tours on Outside Magazine’s blog,

“It’s every cyclist’s dream: watch the Tour de France, ride the exact same mountain roads as the pros, then hang out with all the screaming and often scantily-clad fans alongside the course.”

Ciclismo Classico brings you the exciting opportunity to ride the Tour de France in the French and Italian Alps. This trip, designed by cycling enthusiasts for cycling enthusiasts, allows you to ride along the Tour de France course just hours before the pros arrive and then take to the sidelines to cheer with thousands of other passionate fans from all over the world.

Today, for stage 17 of the 2011 Tour de France, the group’s plan was to ride 64 miles, including the final climb at Pramartino, before cheering on the peloton in Pinreolo.

As the 2011 Tour de France draws to a close, Ciclismo Classico is already taking completely refundable reservations for the 2012 tour. The itinerary for the 2012 tour will be released in November of this year and if it is not to your liking, Ciclismo will allow you to cancel your reservation with no penalty.

This 2012 Italy bike tour offered by Ciclismo Classico is designed to meet up with the Tour de France on three of the most important stages so you will have the chance to both watch and ride the route. The trip is set up to last 7 days & 6 nights, Monday to Sunday, so you can have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of following the Tour de France and only miss 5 days of work.
