• Bring the famous Tour de France Climbs Indoors

    I've been teaching to DVDs from TeleAnimation - the company in Bavaria that produces FitViewer Indoor Cycling training videos. Fantastic!


    Now you can take your class on some of the famous Tour de France climbs like; Alpe d'Huez, Col d´Izoard, Col de la Madeleine, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier and many others.

    FitViewer's DVD selection includes 83 HD videos and include these locations:

    These are very "pure" HD virtual ride videos. There are no riders (except for those randomly passed), no metrics (profiles or other training information) and no music > you would use your own anyways
    You receive good value with many of these videos running 90 minutes to two hours - Alpe d'Huez is just under 3 hours at 175 minutes!
    Here's a sample from Alpe d'Huez.


    With the road clear of spectators, you'll be amazed at how narrow, steep, exciting and scary climbing Alpe d'Huez really is. Sure to get your Indoor Cycling student's motivated and everyone's heart rate elevated!

    These ship from Germany so allow a couple of weeks for deliver - If you're planning to teach some "Tour de France" classes I'd order soon.
    The pricing is in Euros - PayPal or your CC company will convert to dollars, so no worries.
    When you check out you have the option to select the format of the DVD - If you're in North America choose NTSC - PAL if you are in Europe.

      Thanks for the post, John. I stumbled upon some trailers for their videos on YouTube recently, and considered purchasing some of them. Nice to read your review. I think I may just go ahead and order some! The quality looks really nice!

      I ordered a video from Europe once and it did not play in our unit at the club. Sometimes our DVD/Video players won't play a DVD from other countries I found out after investigating. Just wondering if all these are compatable.

      You're exactly right Sandy - actually the first set of samples they sent me didn't play

      When you check out you have the option to select the format of the DVD – If you’re in North America choose NTSC – PAL if you are in Europe.
