FAQ

If your companion rides only a small amount, we offer shorter rides.  This can be a good trip for non-cyclists if they are good walkers.  We do everything we can to ensure their TDF experience is parallel to those of our cyclists.

We want to share our passion for cycling and the Tour De France.  Marty Jemison has ridden the TDF twice during his professional cycling career.  You will be treated as any professional cyclist would be with a mechanic to care for your bike, staff to move your luggage, and guides on the road to show you the way so you can enjoy the Tour to the maximum.

The most convenient way to do this trip is with one of the awesome rental bikes provided by Jemison Tours. While you are always welcome to bring your own bike, not having to pack/unpack your bike and bring it on trains and into Paris is a plus.  A rental bike is included in your trip. Bicycles are lightly used carbon frames with 10 speed Ultegra groups and triple cranks. Marty has set these up specifically for his tours and they are professionally maintained. You also have the option of upgrading to a high end Canyon bike with an 11 speed drive train.
