Tour de France

Tour de France (various points with France) – held every July, this is France’s world-renowned multi-stage bicycle race, which runs a course throughout the country. A mostly French event in the past, it now draws in professional bicyclists from all over the globe. Although there are currently other major bicycle races in other countries (such as the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España), the Tour de France is still regarded as the most prestigious of such events. For those visiting France in July and would like to personally attend one of the race’s stages, see the Tour’s website for details: www.letour.com
