Ever wondered which country is better to experience by bike, France or Italy? Both countries are truly magnificent in their own special ways, so for those who want to taste it all, we have created something unique combining two cultures, two countries and delivering the usual high-end service and attention to detail that we are known for.


Conveniently timed just prior to the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart in the UK, experience the roads made famous by the Le Tour and Giro d'Italia without the crowds, conjestion and traffic.


Ride some of the classic cycling routes made famous by the Tour de France & Giro d’Italia events and relive some of the incredible moments at YOUR pace! And best of all, we have the roads to ourselves, with June being one of the best months to ride through the Alpes - sunny days, splashes of snow on the mountain tops and little traffic to worry about.


As with all procyclingtours holidays, we ensure your time off the bike is just as memorable, soaking up the French & Italian scenery, culture & savouring great regional cuisine. Partners who ride a little or not at all are always welcome and extremely well catered for, with chaperone-like support.


BMC hire bike option

Why not make the travelling lighter and easier by hiring one of our new BMC GF02's equipped with Ultegra, Mavic wheels, compact gears, all spares, helmet and only weighing in at 7.3kgs.  2014 special rate of $495 which is 20% off. Clients who have rented one have provided fantastic feedback, we even know of some buying one upon their return from their holiday.  Click here for more information on our Bike Hire fleet (then click the back arrow to return to this page).
