The Change a Life Vive La France Tour 2018
After a decade of exceptional fund-raising cycle tours, Change a Life staged its most ambitious tour yet as we took on the French Pyranees, cycling in the footprints (or tracks) of the world’s champions.
One of the best-kept secrets of international cycling, the Pyranees form a natural border with Spain, reaching a height of 3 404 metres at the peak of Aneto, and extending 490 kilometres from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean sea. The Pyranees host crucial stages of both the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana, but what differentiates this cycling mecca is that it has escaped the tourist attention that has over-exposed the Alps.
Our participants cycled over 100 kilometres each day along spectacular, undulating routes, through quaint rural villages offering quintessential French culture and cuisine. All of this combined with the Change a Life ethos of Challenge, Adventure and Luxury. It was an experience of a lifetime.
Vive la France! Vive Change a Life!
