For the first time in cycling race history, the Tour de France will arrive in Sheffield on Sunday 6th July!

With it, it will bring at least 250,000 spectators who will line the route in Sheffield, cheering on the cyclists.

On 1 July 1903, 60 pioneers set out on their bicycles from Montgeron for the first ever Tour de France. As the years passed and the tour gained popularity, its reach began to extend beyond France. It is the oldest and the most prestigious cycling tour present today, garnering 22 teams from around the world competing in this year’s race.

The 101th Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and cover a total distance of 3656km with various stages such as flat stages, mountain stages and hill stages. After its UK leg of the tour, it will also pass through Belgium and Spain.

The event will draw at least 250,000 spectators who will line the streets and welcome their arrival into Sheffield from York. Be part of the action by booking your stay with City Crash Pad over the Tour de France weekend now.
