The Etape du Tour Ride Series encourages cyclists around the world to ride like Tour de France legends in over 10 international locations including Japan, Australia, South Africa, and Brazil.

The original Etape du Tour ride was established in 1993 and has grown to over 15,000 annual riders as the premiere mass participation ride in Europe. Though the course changes yearly and the ride is always a goal of passionate Tour de France fans as they get to experience the roads just days before the professional riders. Three-time Tour Champion Chris Froome serves as an ambassador for the series.
