Love cycling? Love eating well? If you're at the intersection of both of those on a Venn diagram, then LeBlanq would be the perfect holiday for you. Imagine world-class food and the best sports icons in cycling coming together for a weekend.
Originally organised for last Autumn, before certain restrictions got in the way, it's now kicking off this summer.
The man behind this luxury cycling tour is Taste of London creator Justin Clarke and he's brought in Sean Yates (Tour de France winning Directeur Sportif) and Ashley Palmer-Watts (former-Executive Chef of the Fat Duck Group) to curate the participants.
The first tour takes place in Champagne, with Eddy Merckx on the tour and Raymond Blanc in charge of the main dinner. Then it's back to the Isle of Wight this September, kicking off with Sir Bradley Wiggins leading the pack. Every morning, breakfast will be made by Ashley Palmer-Watts and dinner on Saturday will be a Tour de Feast dinner by Claude Bosi and Palmer-Watts. The evening ends with a fireside chat and whisky tasting with Yates and Wiggins.
Prices start at £2000 for the weekend - not cheap, but then it's not a bargain break in Butlins. You can register your interest on their website.
