The Tours De France 2013… And 2014

They used to make a really cool little video showing a fly-through of the route of the Tour de France, but strangely, for the 100th Tour de France they have reverted to simplicity… Shame. My route this summer will pass over the route of the Tour de France when I climb Mont Ventoux. The pros climb the mountain on the 14th July (Vive la France!) and I’ll be there a couple of weeks’ later. The second video is a little more dramatic and is to mark the ‘grand départ’ of the Tour de France 2014 which is, of course, in Yorkshire! I hope to be there too. In the meantime there is also a nice audio slideshow about the Tour de France’s history currently being shown on the BBC website.

  1. Which route – and with bike fully loaded or not? Whichever, looks scary to me Andrew!
