Tour de Force 2015

Paris, France
27 Jun - 19 Jul, 2015

About this event

THE charity version of The Tour de France 2015 - just one week ahead of the pros.

On the Saturday 27th June 2015, the Tour de Force riders, like the Tour de France Pros, will start cycling in Utrecht, continuing to follow all 21 stages of the 2015 Tour de France route, staying 7 days ahead of the professionals and finishing approx. 3500 km later, on Monday 20th July on the Champs Elysees in Paris, that's after a punishing 49,000m (160,000 feet) of climbing. Whether cycling one day or multiple days, this is a heroic undertaking. It will hurt!

Please sponsor a cyclist by going to: the William Wates Memorial Trust page on Bmycharity: http://www.bmycharity.com/charities/wwmt

Entries are closed for 2015, but if you fancy a real challenge, then REGISTER FOR 2016! (https://www.tourdeforce.org.uk/register-your-interest/ )

The majority of cyclists will ride a ‘Tour Taster’ package of between two and ten days – a true test of stamina, on average burning 7,000 calories a day. Stages range from the shorter, flatter time-trial stage to those with 30km climbs, 12% hill gradients and up to five mountains!

We also offer a limited number of places for ‘lifers’: cyclists who will take on the staggering challenge of completing the entire route. Whichever challenge you choose, this is an awe-inspiring opportunity to experience the greatest sporting test in the world. And if you haven’t cycled in France before, be prepared for spectacular scenery, wonderful roads, friendly drivers and excellent bakery produce.
