Explore one of the biggest cycling events in the entire world this summer! Setting off from the foot of Mont St. Michel, an awe-inspiring medieval church, the race returns to its home shores this year. Last held here in 2013, 1500 riders pedal through the entire French country-side, careening through other neighboring countries as well. A multi-stage competition, bikers will visit Spain, the principality of Andorra, Normandy, and Switzerland.
