Tour de Force 2012

23/06/2012 - Liege to Paris - Multi-Day

Rating: 100.0% based on 1 review - Rate this Event Now

On the 23rd June 2012, the Tour de Force riders will leave Liege and cycle the 2012 route of the Tour de France (20 stages plus 2 rest days), staying one week ahead of the professionals, and finishing, around 3500 km later, on the Champs Elysees in Paris on the 15th July.

The majority will ride a 'Tour Taster' package of between one and eight days - a true test of stamina, on average burning 7000 calories a day. Stages range from the shorter, flatter time-trial stage to those with 30km climbs, 12% hill gradients and up to five mountains to ride up!

We also offer a limited number of places for 'lifers', cyclists who will take on the staggering challenge of completing the entire route.

Whichever challenge you choose, this is an awe-inspiring opportunity to experience the greatest sporting test in the world. And if you haven't cycled in France before, be prepared for spectacular scenery, wonderful roads, friendly drivers and excellent bakery produce!

Cyclists will pay the cost of their accommodation, food and transfers (plus a small admin fee) and will agree to raise a minimum sponsorship for the William Wates Memorial Trust.

We will provide all possible support during the event: a fully signed route, luggage transfers, cyclist transfers (when the stages are not contiguous), medical and physio support, mechanical support, accommodation and all food and drink (including snacks and water along the route).

Just as important is the moral support and encouragement you'll receive, starting the moment you sign up for this fantastic challenge - we will provide advice on training, nutrition and everything else we can think of that you might need to know!
