Welcome to T T Tours
If you are a keen cyclist and looking for a European cycling holiday where you
can challenge yourself on some of the most spectacular and famous mountains of
the TDF and the Giro and at the same time experience regional village culture
and cuisine then T T Tours is for you. From the time we pick you up to the time
we drop you off at at our pre determined locations everything is organized for
you and we are personally on hand to dine, socialize and most importantly ride
with you every step of the way.
Cycling is our passion and it is our aim to ensure you achieve your
Ultimate cycling experience of a lifetime. In
order to maintain a good personal rapport and to quickly develop a high level
of comaraderie within the groups we limit the number of participants on each
tour. It’s a very rewarding experience to see our riders reaching
the summit of a legendary climb being greeted with cheers, high fives and hugs
from the other group members.
Our France Tours are not
primarily based around the Tour de France (TDF) however we do try to include
wherever possible, a TDF mountain stage in both the Alpes and the Pyrenees. TDF atmosphere abounds
everywhere in July and on a typical day on tour, we will conclude the afternoon
with tales of the days ride over a few refreshing drinks while watching the days
stage finish live on TV at a village pub.
Our Italian Tours do not
include the Giro d’Italia as the weather conditions in May are such that some of
the mountain passes may be closed due to snowfalls and we prefer to go in
July/August when better conditions prevail.
Our carefully chosen locations
allow the daily schedules, whilst including at least one challenging climb, to
be relaxed with no demanding time restrictions or wasted transit time
re-locating each day. We don’t ride extremely long distances each day but we do
ride challenging climbs alternating harder days with easier days to maintain a
Our guides cycling continually monitor your progress and ensure that all abilities are catered for
without pressure but with plenty of encouragement. At the same time we will
enjoy the local cuisine, the towns, the villages, the people, and experience
regional France and Italy.

and then more great challenges.
