You can view Alpe d’Huez and Croix de Fer on The Sports Network’s Tour de France coverage this summer. Or you can sign up for one of Discover France Adventures’ bike trips along these renowned mountain routes. You might cycle the same routes that some of the world’s top pros raced on hours earlier, and also meet several of them. The company offers nine VIP tours on moderate to challenging terrain in the Pyrenees and Alps, and several itineraries for non-cyclists. Trip dates for cyclists are July 9-16 and July 16-23. Prices start at $3,635, and include high-end lodging, cycling guides, support vans, and most meals. Three- and five-day tours give non-cyclists VIP access while they watch various Tour stages and finish-line sprints.
