Loop 2: Spectacular Six – The Atlantic and Brittany (6 days)

Stages: 1-6Fri 29th June - Fri 6th July
Cost: £1050Fundraising: £1200

The Atlantic coast is the more grown up, interesting and slightly less flashy brother to the Mediterranean and four of these first six stages hit the coast at some stage. The Tour doesn’t come to these north western areas as often as we might hope and certainly not with this much focus or variety. So we suggest you join us on this intriguing journey, full of Tour highlights and the (sporty) summer holiday feeling.

Less obvious stages maybe, but seriously fun cycling and not to be overlooked.
If you’d like a challenge but don’t want to take on the big mountains - or if the big, long climbs just aren’t for you, then this is the perfect Loop.
