l’Etape du Tour Route

It’s the ultimate amateur cycling challenge – riding a stage of the Tour de France during the Tour de France and under race conditions. Yep, it’s the one and only l’Étape du Tour.

The official route map and time schedule have been published for the 2017 l’Etape do Tour. It’s a very long ride with an awful lot of climbing! Only 15 days to go…

So, I’ve just fitted new tyres to my bike. Plan is to scrub them in this weekend hopefully. Then the bike is as ready as it’s ever gonna be for the Etape. I just hope I’m ready now? Too late if I’m not!
