Croix de Fer

Small groups, epic rides and great support make for a fantastic experience. This is what Greg had to say about his tour with us this year:

‘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…..

Tour Down Under

The Tour Down Under is a must for all Aussie cyclists. Based for a week in the Adelaide CBD and riding the hills and coastline around the city is a great treat for all cyclists. Combine this with some of the best racing to be seen anywhere on the UCI program and it is a winning formula. We ride each day from our CBD accommodation to a vantage point to watch the race and have lunch at the DCT marquees. Our ride home is often amongst the pros as they to make their way back to the city. More information….

Alpes to Nice 2017

Only on the Col de la Madone could you chance to meet the major sponsor of the Astana Team! This mountain is a famous training ground for the pros and great for all riders. It is steep, it is long, it has views of the Mediterranean Sea and the hinterland that cannot be beaten. Sadly thought it almost marks the end of our Route des Grandes Alpes. More information….

Tour Dolomiti
