The Tour de Guadeloupe (French pronunciation:  [tuʁ də ɡwad(ə)lup] ; English: Tour of Guadeloupe) is an annual men's multiple stage road bicycle race held each August in the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe.

Founded in 1948 under the name : Tour Cycliste de la Guadeloupe, this elite men's competition opened officially to overseas racers in 1979, [1] changing its name to Tour Cycliste international de la Guadeloupe. Covering a majority of the island's territory, the race includes today a prologue time trial and 8 to 9 stages.

As of 2005, the Tour of Guadeloupe is part of the UCI America Tour, which is one of six UCI Continental Circuits ruled by the Union Cycliste Internationale, the international governing body for cycling. Since then, the race has been rated as a 2.2 event on the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) classification standards. [2]

This event is organized by the Comité régional de cyclisme de la Guadeloupe (en: Regional cycling committee of Guadeloupe). [3]
