Our packages with VIP access let you live the greatest races in cycling from the inside. Imagine riding across the finish line on closed roads with crowds cheering you on, climbing the official podium or taking a selfie with your favorite rider! You've dreamed of a trip to the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia or the Vuelta a España; we can help you make it happen in the comfort of VIP venues!

This is a short VIP trip for both cyclists and spectators. It will feature the beautiful Alsace region of northern France and the first mountain top finish of this year’s Tour de France on Planche de Belle Filles! This trip is a perfect choice for anyone wanting to see some great cycling, including the first mountain stage of the year, ride in some beautiful locations and stay close to Paris. We will begin the trip with a ride through the Alsace region and find a place to view the race from the side of the road.

On the second day, we will ride up Planche de Belle Filles and ride across the finish line. The spectators will join us at the finish line and the whole group will be able to take pictures on the podium before viewing the finish of the stage from our VIP location near the finish. For our 3rd day, we have VIP access to the start village, which includes the team bus area and to see the start of the day’s stage.
