Tour de France Femmes is here!

As the men’s Tour draws to a close, the women’s is just beginning. It’s 33 years in the making and it’s now time to show the Tour what it’s been missing!

This historical moment in women’s cycling kicks off today, Sunday 24th July in Paris.

Over eight stages, the women’s peloton will cover just over 1,000km in total, leading to what is expected to be an explosive finale on La Super Planche des Belles Filles on 31st July.

The best female cyclists in the world will tackle flatter stages, puncheur stages including gravel sectors. Plus, back-to-back mountain stages in the Vosges. Therefore, this year’s Tour de France Femmes suits the ultimate all-rounder.

The Tour de France Femmes will be shown in over 170 countries across the world.

Cycle 360 will be showing all the coverage of the Tour de Femmes on the screens in our cafe.  And, we will be cheering on Manx rider, Lizzie Holden, every step of the way!
