Guided Cycle Touring in Europe and Australia with Diamond Cycle Tours
European Tours 2018
Our 2017 tours have successfully concluded and planning is now underway for 2018.
We offer boutique tours that change each year. We only take small groups of riders looking for challenging riding in some of Europe’s most spectacular mountain settings.
In 2017 we again ran our version of the Route des Grandes Alpes. It is our Geneva to Nice Tour and included riding to and watching stages of the Tour de France in the Jura. The tour then headed south taking in iconic climbs like the Alpe d’Huez before heading to the Provence Alps and Maritime Alps and ending in Nice. This tour was 13 days duration.
Our other 2017 tour was an extended Tour Dolomiti that included an extra day in Como and the opportunity for a ride into Livigno. As well as the spectacular beauty of the Dolomiti there is an abundance of iconic mountains to climb such as Stelvio, Gavia, Mortirolo, Sella Ronda, etc., etc….
Small groups, epic rides and great support make for a fantastic experience. This is what Greg had to say about his tour with us:
‘How do I begin to describe the best cycling experience I have ever had……
Scenery, food, company, riding and the climbs – it doesn’t get any better than the DCT experience. I’m back next year for more of the same’. More information…..
Details of the Tour Pyrenees to be advised.
