Le Grand Tour… Concludes

Tonight the final episode of Le Grand Tour series of films is premiered on YouTube in all its glorious UHD beauty. It tells the story of my cycle from Andermatt, high in the Alps and close to the source of The Rhine to The Hook of Holland where the river pours out into the North Sea and where the two-month cycle returns to where it started at the start of July 2022. It was an epic journey of 4,700km on the bike plus another 700km on trains and this final part of the film is perhaps the most dramatic as it follows the course of The Rhine from the steep-sided gorges of Switzerland to the majestically meandering Rhine of the low countries.

To whet your appetite for tonight’s premiere – 8pm GMT on The Cycling Europe YouTube Channel – here is a brief trailer:

And you have a few hours to catch up on parts one, two and three

I’d love to know what you thoughts about the films. You can make a comment here on or via YouTube. It was a memorable journey and hopefully that is reflected in the four films.
