Tour De France 2017

Dates for the 2017 Tour de France have been announced.

Starting in Dusseldorf on July 1st, and finishing in Paris on the 23rd, for the first time in 25 years the Tour will pass through all five of France’s mountain ranges.

The big date for us, though, is July 15th, when the riders depart from Blagnac (Toulouse) and finish the day’s ride in the département capital of the Aveyron, Rodez.

The exact route has yet to be announced, but we can expect the race to pass within a few miles of Les Chataigniers.
