Dust off that Huffy, grease the chain, and purchase some steroids repair the punctures, because the cycle vacay specialists over at Trek Travel are dishing out a nine-day bike tour of some of the most legendary climbs on the Tour De France.

The trip's nearly all-inclusive with eight nights of lodging, daily breakfasts, four lunches, six dinners, and Trek cycling gear... including use of a Trek Domane 5.9 carbon road bike... because we were totally kidding about dusting off the Huffy.

As for terrain, you'll be hitting all the major climbs in the South of France, including a day spent grinding the Pyrenees, two days in Provence where you'll summit Ventoux, another two in La Grave for Col d'Izoard, Col du Télégraphe, and Col du Galibier, and one last stretch in the most historic of all, the Alpe d'Huez where you'll summit Col du Glandon. Man, the French sure love their Cols.

And in order to cover all that ground? Well, you'll be logging 60mi and a ghastly 7,500 vertical feet on average PER DAY.

Like this here? That's Mont Ventoux... Just one of the mountains you'll be pedaling all the way up.

At some points, you might even wish you had a bigger bike.

But when it's all said and done? Seeing how glad this guy is, you'd be a dope not to do it too. To book your trek, click here!
