What is L’Étape du Tour?

Every year, we invite you to ride one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France: the same stage towns, the same routes, the same mythical climbs but also, and above all, the same race conditions as on the Tour. As the result of a significant amount of work carried out in partnership with the police, local organisations and local authorities, L’Étape du Tour is the only cyclosportive to offer routes which are entirely closed to traffic.

With 23 editions under its belt and a peleton of 15,000 participants, L’Étape du Tour is now Europe’s benchmark cyclosportive event.

Why L’Étape du Tour?

L’Étape du Tour is, obviously, an immense sporting challenge. But it is also a tourist adventure which will enable you to discover some of the most beautiful parts of France. From Alpine valleys to the Tourmalet, the giant of the Pyrenees, every year the regions which host the event offer breathtaking scenery.

And because the love of cycling knows no borders, and because the Tour itself is a giant, L’Étape du Tour has given rise to several other races around the world, offering you even more stunning landscapes in the same race conditions as the Tour de France.
