TOUR DE FRANCE GOES EROICA

June 28, 2018

On 20 July, one of the most important and well-known stages of the Tour de France will again take place: Alpe D'Huez. To honour Coppi's first victory there in 1952,  

Tour de France organisers have partnered with us to offer the chance for 50 Eroici to take part in a special few days at the famous climb.​

This is a unique and unmissable opportunity to share the Eroica spirit during one of cycling's most historial moments. On the day of the event we will ride the climb through the massive crowds, and the following day we will lead out the actual Pro Peloton for the first kilometers of the race during a neutralised start.
 
To participate in this experience, you must have a bike from 1952 or earlier and matching vintage gear!
