Etape du Tour Guide


Thought About Tackling L’Etape du Tour But Worried It Was Beyond You?

Well, worry no more, because help is at hand.

The VeloNomad Etape du Tour Guide contains over 80 pages of critical information and research designed to help you plan a trip to, train for, undertake then recover from L’Etape du Tour.

I’ve previously tackled L’Etape several times and have experienced the highs and lows of this epic undertaking.

I’ve taken copious notes on what works and what doesn’t in Tackling L’Etape (and travelling to and within France in general) and have now compiled my insights into a guide designed to help you not just “do” L’Etape, but smash it. I’ve taken all the hard work and hours of researching out of it for you, and compiled my insights, tips and tricks, combined them with my obsession with logistics, to provide a the most comprehensive guide on L’Etape du Tour.

If you’ve never ridden the L’Etape or a French Sportive for that matter, Tim’s Tackling Etape Guide will give you all the tools to succeed. Tim is a L’Etape veteran with extensive knowledge on travelling in France. You won’t find a more compact and extensive travel and ride guide anywhere on the web. Putting it out as an ebook was a great idea. You can carry Tim’s knowledge with you on your iphone/iPad or PC. A must read for anyone trying to complete the L’Etape in good standing.
