Description

The Tour de France is one of the best-known and most challenging athletic events in the world. In the first three weeks of July every year, the pros pit their strength, wit and skill against each other over the gruelling 3,500km route. And every year, amateur riders the world over dream of tackling one of the Tour's legendary stages themselves. Ride a Stage of the Tour de France is the first book that allows non-professional cyclists to do just that. A thorough 'how to' guide, it covers forty of the Tour's classic ascents, including Mount Ventoux, Galibier and Tourmalet. Each route is described in detail by an author who has ridden them all. There's information to help you prepare, train and choose the right stage, and each route comes with a map and vital statistics like altitude, length and difficulty. From where to park to when to go, from what to wear to the characteristics of the road, Riding a Stage of the Tour de France has all you need to complete the challenge safely and successfully.show more
