Next year’s TdF is a sneaky all-France affair with no detours into foreign countries. We also see the removal of the Team Time Trial, which I quite liked.

For those of you with a vague interest in the TdF and more of an interest in a French holiday, I can definitely recommend the Ile de Re (Stage 10) on the West coast which other family members will thank you for choosing. Although you might not like the flat windy cycling on offer for your rides.

Unsurprisingly there are numerous stages in both the Alps and Pyrenees. Yet what is mildly surprising is the start a week earlier than usual to fit in with the riders’ Olympics scheduling  and also unusual is Mont Aigoual in Stage 6 which I’ve never seen before (edit: 1987? apparently)
