On 15 October 2019 race organisers announced the route for the 107th Tour de France. Mountain stages were the target for this edition, but not only in the Alps and the Pyrenees. Riders will traverse the 5 most significant mountain ranges in France next July.

5 MOUNTAIN RANGES

French Alps | Central Massif | French Pyrenees | Jura | Vosges

3470 km

9 flat stages | 3 hilly stages | 8 mountain stage

4 summit finishes

1 individual time trial

2020 Tour de France will start 1 week earlier than normal, in order to make riders available for the Tokyo Olympics later in the year. This is the perfect opportunity for Le Tour to visit a popular tourist hub on the Mediterranean without the normal holiday crowds.

The 2020 Tour de France start in Nice, Cote d'Azur on Saturday 27 June 2020. A French Riviera backdrop will be an incredible spectacle. We have our Grand Cycling Tour trip along with our Grand Depart trips starting before the opening stage. Enjoy the French Riviera and see the Team Presentation as well as the opening stages.

A lumpy stage 2 will animate the competition for general classification, still with 19 days of racing before Paris! 

2020 Tour de France Route - Grande Depart
2020 Tour de France Route - Grand Depart

Riders will depart from Nice and head North into the Alps for their first summit finish. Uniquely, the 2020 Tour de France visits every mountain range in France. It is a hilly profile from beginning to end.

So — In the first week, the race has a stage in the Alps and finishes the week in the Pyrenees. Riders will climb to the highest road in the Gard department in the Cevennes National Park, part of the Central Massif mountain range. Road surfaces are coarse and there are many gorges to navigate, so it will tire the riders' legs before they reach the Pyrenees.

Port de Bales and Col du Peyresourde will return to the Tour de France route in 2020. Our Grand Cycling Tour trip and Girona to the Pyrenees trip will watch the tour in the Pyrenees.

After the first week of racing through 3 mountain ranges the tour will take a much needed rest on the Atlantic coast. While the roads flatten, the wind may also pick up. We saw the possibilities that cross-winds cause in the 2019 Tour of Spain!

So — General classification riders will be alert to conditions and their teams will have to work hard. Sprinters will also demand their teams to help secure a stage win and sprint points on the flatter stages.

But sprint stages are only short lived before riders enter the Central Massif for a second time. This time in the Volcano region of France, Auvergne. The riding in the area is always up and down, an opportunity for a breakaway. For us, some beautiful riding in country France, and spectacular views. A favourite area to ride for our crew! Also near to many famous French cyclists, such as Julian Alaphilippe.

Some of the most unpredictable stages will be in the Auvergne. Our Best of Le Tour and Grand Cycling Tour trips will follow the race through the Volcano region.

On the eve of the final rest day the race returns to the French Alps. A second visit, this time its north. A new summit finish to Grand Colombier, it has been a categorised climb in many tours past, but it makes its debut as a summit finish. It has some steep pinches to reach the summit, so an exciting stage is planned.

Col de la Loze will also debut as a new summit finish. A newly paved 6km section will test the riders well above the 2,000m elevation.

We have 5 trips in the Alps during the final week.

  • Challenge yourself on our Grandes Alpes trip will parallel the tour route and conquer many climbs while pausing briefly to see the race at key locations. It is an experienced riders itinerary.
  • Our race fans on our Spectator trip will follow each stage in the final week.
  • Ticking of some bucket list items themselves, our Alpe d'Huez to Paris trip climbs several famous climbs and will see the race often.
  • Our Best of Le Tour and Grand Cycling Tour trips will combine and enjoy seeing the race and riding from their base in the Alps near Annecy.

From the Alps, before reaching Paris, the Tour will visit the Jura mountains and the Vosges mountains, thereby traversing the 5 mountain ranges of France.

At the base of Le Planche des Belles Filles in the Vosges a winner will emerge, and most likely they will have completed the individual time trial in the fastest time. A regular addition in recent years, including a spectacular gravel road segment in 2019, Le Planche des Belles Filles will feature in part of the Individual Time trial course.

Our Alpe d'Huez to Paris and Tour de France Spectator trips have the opportunity to see the final time trial before taking the TGV to Paris for the finale. Our Best of Le Tour and Grand Cycling Tour will already be in Paris enjoying a gourmet farewell dinner and a bike ride around the Paris sights.
