320kph and a fine dining experience

This morning we will transfer to the TGV, the high-speed train service to Paris. If you haven’t travelled by fast train before, you’ll find this truly remarkable. Reaching speeds in excess of 320 km/h, you’ll be in Paris soon after lunch. We’ll transport your luggage and bikes for you, making it even easier. On arrival in Paris, we’ll check into our 4-star hotel rooms and catch up with today’s final mountain stage.

Tonight, we have a special treat for dinner as we step back in time as to how the French travelled. Decorative fresco artwork populates our evening restaurant with motifs for various region of France, many of which are where we’ve travelled together. This 3 course farewell dinner with accompanying wine is a wonderful way to celebrate our our trip.

 

TODAY IN THE RACE
Stage 20: Albertville to Val Thorens, Mountain, 131 km
A third summit finish above 2,000m creates the theatre for the final alpine stage, and the final opportunity for the yellow jersey. The total ascent for the day approaches 4,500m, but negotiating some of the windy descents may prove the difference.
