The Tour de France is an annual multi stage bicycle race mainly held around France although it can occasionally make passes through nearby countries. It has grown over the years to be known as the greatest race on Earth with the 103rd Tour de France also visiting three neighbouring countries: Spain, the Principality of Andorra and Switzerland. Driving the Tour De France route has become a popular self drive itinerary in recent years. Imagine the excitement of waiting in the idyllic French countryside or at the top of a mountain for the Tour de France to roll by. With Peugeot Leasing, you can do this in the comfort of a brand new car.
The three-week long event typically goes from approximately the first weekend in July to three weeks later. The mountain stages (in the Pyrenées and the Alps) are always a magnificent spectacle where thousands of fans flock. The rest days between stages allow visitors to explore the surrounding countryside and to move onto the next stage ahead of the cyclists. Bear in mind that accommodation can book out quickly so you'll need to be organised ahead. You should also bear in mind that there will be road closures so it's advisable to arrive in your planned destination well ahead of the competitors.
