SPECIAL RISK-FREE, FULLY REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT POLICY
In response to the uncertainty surrounding global travel during the Covid-19 outbreak, we have now updated our booking policy to ensure that all new bookings made on our 2020 or 2021 tours, including Tour de France tours will be risk-free and fully refundable in the event that the Tour de France does not run or clients are restricted in their travels.
NEW TOUR DE FRANCE 2020 DATES
We are excited to have been advised by the A.S.O. that this year’s Tour de France has been postponed to new dates, now beginning in Nice, Cote d’Azur on Saturday 29th August, concluding on the Champs-Elysées on Sunday 20th September 2020. The route for the Tour de France will not change and all cities and municipality have agreed on the updated dates in collaboration with the French Government.
In partnership with the A.S.O, our team has worked hard to reschedule our experiences to reflect the new event dates. Assuming the global pandemic is under control and the organisation and world health bodies deems it safe, we will be excited to deliver continued unique experiences.
As an official tour operator of the Tour de France, we are in constant correspondence with the A.S.O, and will have access to full support of the event in our delivery as well as being provided with timely updates if any further event-related decisions are made.
We are pleased to now have our new tour dates finalised for our 2020 experiences; from the Grand Depart in Nice, through to Paris. Each tour’s itinerary and activities will remain the same – just as epic as before!

Due to the unprecedented effects the virus has had globally, we have postponed all tours through to the revised Tour de France dates; including Paris-Nice, the Spring Classics and the Giro d’Italia. In postponing, we have been proud to have offered our clients a full credit of 100% of their funds paid to any tour offered by Mummu Cycling up until 31 December 2021.
We are now optimistic and hopeful that we will go ahead with our planned experiences from the new August Tour de France dates, onwards. Revised Mummu Cycling tour dates will be updated accordingly, when the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) confirm new updated race dates.
Please be reassured that your health and safety on tour will be our highest priority. We have implemented increased hygiene protocols on all tours including; increased sanitisation of equipment and transport vehicles (inside and outside), sufficient supply of disposable gloves and hand sanitiser for each client, reduced food handling by our team, confirmation of strict hygiene levels at all venues accessed during each trip and reduced human contact through riding and bike handling.

LOCKDOWN LIVE WITH STUEY O’GRADY + FRIENDS OF THE PRO PELOTON
Lockdown weekend’s have been rather busy for us and Stuart O’Grady as we’ve been running our ‘Lockdown Live with Stuey O’Grady + Friends of the Pro Peloton’ over on our Instagram channel.
The extra down time and absence of racing has left Stuey with more hours to catch up with ‘old mates of the peloton’ and chat all things ‘lockdown’, to missing the race days that ‘would’ve been’. In particular, the Spring Classics!
So far, we’ve had some very special guests join us for Lockdown Live with Stuey, including; the legendary Fabian Cancellara, the Lion of Flanders, Johan Museeuw, with Aussie cycling legend Simon Gerrans and former Tour de France winner, Andy Schleck to come.
Tune in, here.
