Need a reminder of what this year’s Tour de France route, which kicks off in Utrecht on Saturday 4 July, has in store for the peloton?
Cobbles, the Mur de Huy, plenty of coast winds, followed by iconic climbs in the Alps (Alpe d’Huez) and the Pyrenees (Le Tourmalet), the peloton will need to be vigilant and ready to race from the first moment in the Utrecht prologue to the final dash across the line on the Champs-Elysees.

Oooh, it sounds good, (well perhaps not if you’re riding it!!!), but I can’t wait to see it unfold! 🙂
That makes two of us Maxine!
