A new interactive map can help you follow this year’s Tour de France route, and marks places to stay and visit too.

Outdoor accommodation specialist Pitchup.com is gearing up for this year’s Tour de France with a new interactive Tour route planner on its website. The planner details the 2,000-mile route the Tour de France will take, as well as a comprehensive list of bookable campsites, holiday parks and lodges for every stage of the race.

The route planner covers all 20 stages of the Tour, beginning with the Grand Départ in North Yorkshire, on Saturday 5th July, right through to the finish at Périgueux, on Saturday 26th July.

Use the map to find places to stay.

The interactive planner is in the form of a map, with the Tour route stages clearly marked. Users can click the map anywhere along the route to find details of each stage, the dates they take place, the nearby towns and the route itself. Clicking on the map will also give details of up to ten nearby holiday parks and campsites along the way, which can be booked on Pitchup.com.

The map also has a ‘Find out more’ section for a lowdown of other attractions in the vicinity.

Get on your bike if you want to follow the Tour

If you do plan on following the tour or catching some of its stages this year, our advice is not to hang around. With less than six months to go before the start of the Tour, many sites are starting to get booked up and, as the event draws nearer, prices are likely to shoot up. Through the PitchUp.com website you can secure accommodation for as little as a £10 deposit, and, with prices as low as £12 per night, it makes sense to book early.
