Welcome to On Your Bike
Welcome to On Your Bike, Ireland's premier and dedicated Etape du Tour Package specialist. We are a customer service oriented tour operator that knows what it takes to create a holiday experience with a difference.
The recent announcement of the Tour de France route gives us cyclists something fun to look forward to next summer. Hopefully the prospect of riding the Etape du Tour will keep you motivated and ensure that your bike doesn't go into hibernation over the winter.
2013 celebrates the 100th edition of the Tour de France and the organisers have put together an exciting and innovative Tour de France parcours. The route promises to be a real celebration of France and will showcase its most beautiful scenery and iconic monuments. The route holds some surprises, one of which is the removal of the penultimate stage TT in favour of a summit-finish up to the ski-station of Semnoz. The organisers have chosen this stage as next year's sole Etape du Tour route for amateurs. The route promises to be incredibly undulating and picturesque with magnificent views of Mont Blanc and Lac d'Annecy. This will be the first time the Tour races up the challenging ascent to Semnoz but it will also be last time the pros battle to win the 100th edition of the Tour de France. Are you too up for the challenge?
Our 2013 Etape du Tour trip will be a weeklong point to point traverse of the Alps from Nice to Annecy. We will be taking in 2 days to experience the Tour de Fance firsthand in Nice before moving north across some of the highlights of the Alps, including the higest road pass in Europe as well as Alpe d'Huez, all before taking on the Etape itself in Annecy. Please visit our TOURS page for full details on this amazing opportunity.
We wish you and your bike well and remind you not to feed your bike too much cake before next year's trip!
