Online PR News – 29-January-2011 – – Parker, CO, January 27, 2011 -- DiscoverFrance.com announces their bike Paris Roubaix itinerary for 2011 in conjunction with their Tour de France tours. This short but exclusive program is an experience of a lifetime. Cyclists experience riding the most famous of the Spring Classic routes including the sections of cobblestones that have taken their toll on many of the most legendary names in cycling over the years. In a group with ten other avid cyclists and two exceptional guides, travelers will experience an intimate tour from Paris to Roubaix, while enjoying access to the pros, backstage media areas, and the finish line, as well as their own hotel room.
After riding the amateur event, the next day cyclists get a VIP backstage experience at the pro stage; there is no better way to go! We arrive in Paris and warm up briefly before the big ride, and then you can relax in style on Sunday: see the sign in ceremony, be among the pros as they come to sign in and go behind the race lines to see the race start including a VIP brunch with other cycling dignitaries. Following the start cyclists will go out ahead of the pro field and caravan to arrive at the finish line in advance. At the finish they have special VIP access to watch the race develop on a big screen TV while enjoying snacks and be at the finish line VIP area for the arrival of the racers. Cyclists can enjoy some champagne with other cycling VIPs and then watch the awards.
