So you are looking for a gift for a Tour de France fan? Being a little obsessive about Le Grande Boucle myself hopefully, I can provide a few starting points!
We will start with some cheaper stocking filler stuff and work our way up to some epics!
One of our top selling prints and perfect for Tour de France fanatics.
The Alpe d'Huez is, we think, the most quintessential climb of the Tour de France bar none! Every road cyclist dreams of conquering this one.
Updated for 2020 this print is the perfect gift for more folk who love minimal design and have a perverse passion for the colours of the Tour.
Sadly not many of us got the chance to visit the Tour this year in person but we can still check out where it went with out Tour map.
Our Tour profiles posters make perfect gifts for anyone who seriously loves the Tour and wants to adorn their house with a minimal and modern poster. The graphic shows each of the stages profiles of the relevant Tour de France and is in the style of the famous Joy Division album cover.
The Etape du Tour gives fans of the Tour a chance to ride a stage of the Tour de France, just a few days after the pros. This year features an epic 177km route from Nice, looping into the Alpes-Maritimes, finishing on the Promenade de Anglais. Riders will climb 3,570m across the Col de la Colmiane, the Col du Turini and finally the epic Cold'Eze.
Direct tickets to participate in the event are sold out but I can highly recommend Love Velo’s package. You get a race entry, accommodation, and some other nice bits n bobs too.
The ‘Le Loop’ allows amateur cyclists all 21 stages of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the pros. Include hotels, meals, feed stops, transfers, mechanics, medics and physios… you just turn up and ride. It is a huge challenge and one I’ve yet to commit too. I want to do the full loop but need to find the finances and figure out how to get the time off work whilst keeping my family happy.. Hmm!
The full Loop sells out fast but you can usually find 3 and 7 day chunks of the Le Loop still available into Spring. Get on it.
Well that's it for our Best Gifts for Tour de France Fans. If you have any other ideas feel free to ping us an email and we will drop it in!
