Visit Andorra Before the Tour de France 2016

Visit Andorra Before the Tour de France 2016

For cyclist who like to be a pedal revolution before the game, this year is the perfect time to visit Andorra. Next year this little country in the Pyrenees will host the Tour de France 2016 for three days, including a stage finish, a rest day and a stage start.

The Tour of Spain 2015 passes through Andorra.

It’s been seven years since the biggest race on the planet visited the principality, which will add a mountainous part to the Tour with 65 peaks over 2,000m high.

Exact routes will be confirmed this October this, but Tour organizers have already confirmed that the Grand Depart start will be just over the Channel in Mont St Michel, Normandy, and the second stage will pass Utah Beach, one of the 1944 D-Day landing beaches.

Elite riders will get a taste of cycling in Andorra later this year when the 11th stage of the 2015 Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain) passes through.

A bus ride from Barcelona to Andorra takes three hours, and costs about £50 there and back. See visitandorra.com to plan your visit.
