The 2018 race guide
 is now available to order online in the UK.


We find the guide invaluable when planning our trips to watch the Tour de France. It's got maps of every stage, plus full team and stage profiles, as well as stage start and end times (they are particularly useful to have in one place both when planning and on the day).

Where to get it ....

There is usually a 'standard' edition and a 'premium' edition.

The 'premium' edition costs £14.99 and includes:

Official 220-page race guide
- 68-page book of tour trivia
- Tour de France wallchart
- Official fold-out route map
- Limited-edition postcards
EXCLUSIVE EXTRAS:
- Bonus magazine – what it takes to train for the tour

The 'standard' edition is £9.99 and includes:

- Official 220-page race guide
- 68-page book of tour trivia
- Tour de France wallchart
- Official fold-out route map
- Limited-edition postcards

Why get it?

We wouldn't go to watch a Tour de France stage without it.

We get dozens of emails every day asking for information about following the Tour de France – I always tell them to get a copy of the official race programme to make planning easier. This guide has lots of info that can help you plan your trip. While it is publised too early to include road closure information (see this page for that), having all the stage information in one place is really handy. It basically replicates the official TDF website but in a much more easily digestible format and in much more detail.  

Each stage is profiled with a map that helps you put key cols and stage towns ito perspective, and to see clearly where access road may be. The pullout map then gives a full overview of how the stages interact.

This guide SELLS OUT EVERY YEAR, often weeks before the Tour. If you are thinking of watching the Tour de France in person, you should order a copy early.
