If you drive to a village on the Tour de France route the day before the road is blocked off for the Stage, every other vehicle you will see will be a motorhome.

Tips for following the Race
- Plan well ahead. The exact route town by town and landmark by landmark can be found on the official Le Tour website.
- The most popular Stages in the Pyranees and the Alps are spectacular, but since the best camping spots start to fill up two days before the action, get there early.
- The time trials give you a chance to see extended action as the competitors pass at intervals.
- Make sure you do not block the road or park roadside on the mountain Stages, otherwise the Gendarmerie could move you on just before the action starts. Parking restrictions are more flexible during the Tour but not completely flexible.
- Consider setting up camp slightly away from the villages included in the Tour route and cycle to your viewing spot. You can stay at a campsite or on one of the Aires. Aim to get to a Stage by 10am each morning.
- A satellite navigation and a Michelin map are essential to get you to the Stages on time. Allow for some traffic jams.
- Don’t stay too far away from the Stages otherwise you will miss out on much of the party atmosphere that makes the Tour de France unique.
- Enjoy the publicity caravan as it really builds a great atmosphere, but be warned the competition to collect the most freebies is fierce.
- Use the two rest days to travel onto another area.
- During the Stages – don’t forget to take some water and sunscreen with you.
- Once the race is over go to a local bar to watch the rest of the day’s action on TV.
