Tour de France 2012 Route Announced

The Tour De France route for 2012 has just been released. Here’s a link to the route on the official Tour de France website. The race starts on 30th June & finishes in Paris on 22nd July. On Thursday 12th July one of the high mountain stages starts in Albertville, which is less than 70kms from Chamonix Mont Blanc. The alpine stage which takes in the famous Col de la Madeleine at 2000m & finishes at Les Sybelles is the 2nd day in the high mountains & could start to point towards potential winners. It’s a fun day out with a real carnival atmosphere & the kids will love the procession of sponsors floats & cars giving out free gifts before the cyclists fly past. Chamonix is a great summer holiday destination & going to see the Tour for the day is just one of the many activities that you could enjoy on your summer holiday in Chamonix.
