    The Tour de France 2016 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth, profiles and time- and route schedulesAs usual, velowire.com allows you to discover in detail the race route of this 103rd edition of the Grande Boucle, with maps on Google Maps/Google Earth. The first maps were available on the French version of the website 3 weeks before the start of the Tour de France 2016 already and these have been progressively completed since. All stages are now online, with the English translation.

    With the informations in this article you'll get to know all tiny details, all cities and villages which will be visited by the Tour and you'll thus be able to prepare your visit of the Tour if you plan to go there, or simply better understand the race if you're staying home!

    Some preliminary information ...

    Here is some preliminary information which is important to know before you get to discover the details of all the Tour de France 2016 stages:
    - as for any contents on velowire.com, its reproduction in any form is stricly forbidden, as explained on the copyright page. Please respect the huge amount of time it takes me to prepare contents like these!
    - the profiles of the stages have been generated automatically based on the altitude informations which are available for the places where the race goes; there might thus be some places where the information is not completely correct, but the global profile still remains valid!
    - at the moment these maps have been prepared, the Tour de France 2016 roadbook was not yet available for the press and the detailed informations about the stages had not yet been published on the official website of the race; the information in this article should be correct anyway however because I based it on the detailed sources of information I was able to get access to!

    The programme of the Grand Départ of the Tour de France 2016

    Here ar the dates to keep in mind for this Grand Départ of the Tour de France 2016:

    • Monday 4 July 2016 : 3rd stage - start in Granville ; the start Granville, going off to Angers, will bring up the final kilometers in the Manche department which will without any doubt have received a numerous public for the Grand Départ of this Tour de France 2016

    The Tour de France 2016 race route on Google Maps

    Let's now discover all the details about the Tour de France 2016 race route, stage by stage:

    1/ Saturday 2 July 2016 - Mont-Saint-Michel > Utah Beach Sainte-Marie-du-Mont - 188 km

    The first stage of the Tour de France 2016 will thus be a stage in line of 188 kilometers.

    This first stage of the Tour de France 2016 will start at the Mont-Saint-Michel, which will be a nice backdrop for the start of this stage, after having received the Tour de France for the last time in 2013 for a time trial which finished in front of the monumental rock building.

    The stage will be relatively flat over 188 kilometers, with two small climbs early in the stage, and at the finish a sprinter will thus cross the finish line first at Utah Beach, one of the landing locations on 6 June 1944 in the city of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.

    • start : the stage will start at the Mont-Saint-Michel, at the car park; the kilometer 0 will be on the D275, at the crossing with the chemin des Buternes on the right
    • climbs : Côte d'Avranches (4th, 1.2 km at 5.7%) at km 20.5 and Côte des falaises de Champeaux (4th, 1.3 km at 4.8%) at km 39
    • feeding zone : close to Gouville-sur-Mer
    • intermediate sprint : Rue des Hauts Vents in La Haye at km 118.5
    • finish : at Utah Beach on the D913, after a final straight line of 500 m visible (last bend at 5 km) / 6 m large
    • visited departments : Manche (50) from km 0 till km 188
    • main cities : Avranches, Granville, Sainte-Mère-Eglise, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont

    2/ Sunday 3 July 2016 - Saint-Lô > Cherbourg-en-Cotentin - 183 km

    The second stage of the Tour de France 2016 will also start in the Manche department, in Saint-Lô where the permanence of the Grand Départ will be located as well, at the Pôle Hippique-Haras national.

    The stage will be mainly flat following the west coast, but to get to the coast the riders will have already climbed three 4th category climbs (Côte de Torigny-les-Villes, Côte de Montabot and Côte de Montpinchon). The race route thus becomes flat after these three and gets a little bit more hilly a bit further on until Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, the finish location just after the Côte de La Glacerie. This 3 kilometers long climb going up to 14% at some place could lead to a first shift between the candidates for overall victory or at least among those who ticked this stage for a potential stage win on this second day! Chances thus are that the Maillot Jaune taken at the sprint the day before will go on the shoulders of another rider after this stage.

    During the presentation of the Tour de France 2016 the finish location was presented as Cherbourg-Octeville but together with some surrounding villages it is now called Cherbourg-en-Cotentin.

    Between the start of this stage in Carcassonne and the finish in Montpellier, the riders will find just two difficulties of the 2nd category, in the first half of the stage, the Côte de Minerve and the Côte de Villespassans. This will certainly not prevent the sprinters who have survived the Pyrenees from doing a finish like we usually know them in Montpellier: with a bunch sprint!

    Montpellier will also be the start city of the 12th stage and it will be 184 kilometers long towards the Mont Ventoux. Actually, the riders will be on their bike for about 200 kilometers because the kilometer 0 will be at no less than 18.7 kilometers from the start location, in order to completely leave the agglomeration around Montpellier, just after Castries.

    Passing south of Nîmes and Avignon and after a first half of the stage completely flat, the riders will find the two first small climbs, the Côte de Gordes (4th category) and the Col des Trois Temps (3rd category) before they'll continue to the final climb of the Mont Ventoux (hors catégorie)!

    13/ Friday 15 July 2016 - Bourg-Saint-Andéol > La Caverne du Pont-d'Arc - individual time trial - 37.5 km

    The day after the stage finish on top of the Mont Ventoux, an individual time trial starting in Bourg-Saint-Andéol will be on the programme. This first time trial of this Tour de France 2016 could well influence the general classification with its distance of 37.5 kilometers, especially because a rider who would like to get a good time in this stage should have some climbing capabilities as well. Indeed, right from the start and up to the first intermediate timing point on top of the Côte de Bourg-Saint-Andéol the race route goes uphill over a distance of 7.5 kilometers with an average steepness of 4.5%. This will be followed by a flat part with the intermediate timing point at Les Arredons before the riders in their individual effort start the descent towards the Ardèche river. They'll then get to the intermediate timing point at the Pont d'Arc and continue along the river before getting on another uphill part in the last kilometers, up to the finish at La Caverne du Pont-d'Arc.

    The 14th stage, starting in Montélimar will be pretty flat and made for sprinters. The three 4th category climbs will definitely not prevent them from getting organised for a bunch finish at the Parc des Oiseaux in Villars-les-Dombes.

    The 15th stage of the Tour de France 2016 will start in Bourg-en-Bresse and shows a much more mountaneous profile than the previous stage. Indeed, in addition to a climb of the 2nd and two climbs of the 3rd category, the riders will have to climb quite rapidly after the start of the stage a 1st category climb, the Col du Berthiand before they'll find the Grand Colombier, hors catégorie, in the last third of the stage, and they'll find this mountain once again in the circuit around the finish city, climbing the Lacets du Grand Colombier before going on back to the finish in Culoz.

    16/ Monday 18 July 2016 - Moirans-en-Montagne > Bern (CH) - 209 km

    The 16th stage of the Tour de France 2016, starting in Moirans-en-Montagne, will leave the French territory halfway the stage to enter the Swiss territory where the stage will finish in Bern. This stage shows a profile without much difficulties but the Côte de Mühleberg (4th category) could well prevent the sprinters from battling for the stage victory!

    After this second rest day, the start of the 17th stage will also be in Bern in Switzerland and this stage will entirely take place on Swiss ground. It will be a stage for pure climbers. Indeed, going off south and after two 3rd category climbs, the Côte de Saanenmöser and the Col des Mosses, the riders will go on with the Col de la Forclaz (1st category) over 13 kilometers and the final climb towards the finish at the barrage of Finhaut-Emosson over about 10 kilometers. The Critérium du Dauphiné 2014 already had a stage finish there.

    18/ Thursday 21 July 2016 - Sallanches > Megève - individual time trial - 17 km

    Back in France for the 18th stage of the Tour de France 2016 this Thursday 21st of July, for an individual time trial over a distance of 17 kilometers uphill, like what we usually see as a cronoscalata in the Tour of Italy. Indeed, after about 4 kilometers flat, the riders will start the climb towards the top of the Côte de Domancy in their individual effort, where they'll find the first intermediate timing point (2.5 km at 9.4%) on top of which the Prix Bernard Hinault will be awarded to the rider who will show the fastest time in this climb.

    After a flatter part and the intermediate timing point in Combloux, they'll go on with the climb of the Côte des Chozeaux (3.1 km at 5.4%) and in this climb they'll reach the last intermediate timing point before the finish, in Les Berthelets. A short uphill part will be followed by the descent towards Megève where they'll cross the finish line.

    Further south than the previous day's time trial, the start of this 19th stage will be in Albertville and this will be a real mountain stage!

    Right after the start, the riders will start the climb of the Collet de Tamié (8.1 km at 7%), a non referenced climb for the King of the Mountains classification. After the sprint in Doussard and a short part alongside the lake of Annecy, they'll climb the Col de la Forclaz de Montmin of the 1st category. This climb will be followed by a visit of the valley over about twenty kilometers and they'll then climb the smaller brother of the previous climb, the Col de la Forclaz de Queige of the 2nd category. Rapidly after that they'll go on with a hors catégorie climb, the Montée de Bisanne, and after a déjà-vu on the roads in Megève and Combloux which the riders saw the day before as well, they'll start the final climb towards the Mont Blanc above Saint-Gervais with the finish at Le Bettex.

    20/ Saturday 23 July 2016 - Megève > Morzine - 146.5 km

    The forelast stage of the Tour de France 2016 will still be in the same area, with a start in Megève. This will be a short stage with no less than 4 difficulties following up on each other however. Rapidly after the start, the riders will start the climb of the Col des Aravis of the 2nd category and battle for the intermediate sprint after the descent, in Le Grand Bornand. Right after that they'll start the climb of the Col de la Colombière of the 1st category and after a long descent they'll get in the valley where they can get some new forces in the feeding zone in Marignier. The two most important climbs of the stage will follow, the Col de la Ramaz of the 1st category and the Col de Joux Plane (hors catégorie). The descent of the last mentioned mountain will bring the riders to the finish in Morzine.

    In the descent of the Col de la Ramaz, between Le Praz de Lys and Fry, at a location called La Ravine there's currently a risk for landslides on the D328 and since the situation doesn't seem to be completely certain for now (see this article of the Dauphiné newspaper which seems more alarming than the last publication from the Taninges city at the date of publication of this article), the race route of this stage might be modified before the 23rd of July. The easiest solution seems to be to go from Mieussy directly to Taninges and thus circumvent the Col de la Ramaz! Even though in theory it's also possible to turn left on the D328 from the descent on the D308 (which would mean there'd be a very sharp hairpin bend), instead of turning right as originally planned, and thus climb the Col de l'Encrenaz and the Col des Gets in order to get back on the initial race route and still be able to climb the Col de Joux Plane.

    21/ Sunday 24 July 2016 - Chantilly > Paris Champs-Elysées - 113 km

    The 'Patrouille de France' will again fly over the peloton of the Tour when it enters ParisThe last stage which finishes in Paris is always a bit particular. Everyone's happy to end off with the race but the next day it will be a bit strange anyway not going to the start anymore. The riders celebrate the end of the Tour on the roads of this last stage, a glass of champagne in their hands! This will again be the case this year, but what's particular for this stage is that the start will be north of the French capital, for the first time since 1984 (Pantin). This time the start will be close to the castle of Chantilly.
    The peloton will enter Paris from the west and then follow the Avenue de la Grande Armée, descend towards the Seine via the Avenue Marceau, follow the river and turn left in front of the Louvre museum and arrive on the usual 8 laps on the final circuit! (they'll cross the finish line 9 times)

  1. Comme pour le Giro, quand je clique pour agrandir l'étape, l'itinéraire a disparu. Est-ce normal ? Superbe boulot tout de même, merci.

    | marc | friday 10 June 2016 at 15:18:15

  2. @marc, il y a trois éléments pour chaque étape : l'itinéraire horaire, le profil et la carte Google Maps. On peut cliquer sur chacun des éléments un par un (et fermer l'élément précédent avant de cliquer sur le suivant) ou alors en ouvrir un et avancer aux autres avec la flèche droite du clavier.

    Je ne comprends pas ce que veut dire "quand je clique pour agrandir l'étape, l'itinéraire a disparu" :-(. Pouvez-vous préciser ?

  3. Bonjour Thomas, merci de ce travail d'orfèvre !

    Je ne sais pas si vous êtes au courant, mais il y a des menaces d'éboulement en bas de la descente du col de la Ramaz. Des capteurs vont être installés sur la route ce qui la fermera pour plusieurs semaines, mais les risques demeurent toujours.

    http://www.ledauphine.com/environnement/2016/06/01/la-route-montant-au-praz-de-lys-restera-fermee-plusieurs-semaines

    L'éboulement a lieu sur la D328, avant le carrefour avec la D308 qui mène au col de la Ramaz. Cette route est empruntée en descente par l'étape.

    Pour le moment ni la préfecture, ni la mairie de Taninges, ni ASO n'ont communiqué dessus - il faut dire que cela reste mineur, contrairement au glissement de terrain du Chambon qui était d'une ampleur nettement supérieure. Mais il existe un risque que l'itinéraire soit modifié, d'autant plus qu'il sera emprunté 2 fois à 2 semaines d'intervalle (l'étape du Tour Mondovélo le 10 juillet et l'étape des pros le 23 juillet).

    Etant donné que la route du col de la Ramaz a fait l'objet d'un resurfaçage tout récemment, il serait bête pour ASO de supprimer le col (d'autant que les petites communes sur la route de la Ramaz risquent de pas être contentes et que la route aura été rénovée "pour rien"), mais la seule alternative serait de passer par le col de l'Encrenaz et le col des Gets pour éviter la zone dangereuse et rallier Joux-Plane - ce qui rendrait l'étape plus dure.

    De plus pour rallier l'Encrenaz depuis la Ramaz, il faut prendre une épingle ultra-serrée, qui pourrait être difficile à prendre pour certains véhicules. Du coup, une question se pose à moins d'un mois du départ du Tour !

  4. Bonjour Linkinito,

    l'option de détournement choisie sera de rallier directement Mieussy à Taninges. La décision définitive sera prise au dernier moment (un à 2 jours avant le passage de l'étape du Mondovelo et du Tour.

  5. Bonjour Thomas,

    comme Marc, quand je clique sur l'image ouvrant google map, je ne vois pas le parcours de l'étape.

    | Olivier73 | friday 10 June 2016 at 22:30:05

  6. @Linkinito #3 : j'avais lu quelques infos là-dessus en effet. Pour l'instant je préparerais la carte selon le parcours initialement prévu :), on verra bien après !

    @Olivier73 #5 : vous voyez quoi à la place ? Un cadre vide ? Avez-vous attendu suffisamment longtemps ? J'ai remarqué que Google met plus de temps à afficher la carte depuis quelque temps :-(. Malheureusement je ne peux rien y faire si c'est ça et dans ce cas vous devez simplement attendre un petit peu plus. Pour moi ça fonctionne sans aucun problème (sous Firefox).

    | Thomas Vergouwen | friday 10 June 2016 at 22:35:27

  7. ça marche sous firefox, le problème est sous chrome. Google map s'affiche, il manque simplement la couche du parcours.

    | Olivier73 | friday 10 June 2016 at 23:16:54

  8. @Olivier73 : testé à l'instant avec Chrome (dans sa dernière version, 51.0.2704.84 m), ça fonctionne nickel, le chargement des cartes y est même plus rapide.

    Si ça ne fonctionne pas chez vous c'est donc un problème sur votre version de Chrome ou dans vos paramètres / antivirus / firewall ou autre.

    | Thomas Vergouwen | friday 10 June 2016 at 23:29:23

  9. @Olivier73 #4 : J'imagine que vous êtes bien informé pour parler de cette option au futur et non au conditionnel. D'où tenez-vous cette source ? :)

    Après, personnellement, je trouve qu'éviter totalement la Ramaz serait bête, comme je l'ai dit, car :
    - Cela raccourcirait l'étape de 20 km (on passerait de 146 à 125 km)
    - Les stations de Sommand et du Praz-de-Lys seraient pas très contentes de voir le Tour les zapper alors qu'une alternative est "faisable", d'autant plus qu'on les priverait de 2 jours de forte activité (l'étape du Tour Mondovélo et l'étape des pros)
    - On se retrouverait avec 40 km de plat entre le bas de la descente de la Colombière et le pied de la montée de Joux-Plane. Ce qui ne va clairement pas pousser à une attaque de loin, bien au contraire.

    Certes on est encore un peu loin de l'échéance et on ne sait pas ce qu'il se passera mais avec les glissements de terrain et les éboulements, on est jamais sûrs de rien. On pensait que ce serait pas si grave au Chambon avant de voir tout un pan de la montagne se fissurer et avancer de 15 cm par jour...

  10. Bij ons werkt het gewoon goed!!

  11. j'aimerai avoir des informations sur les fermetures des cols notamment sur l'etape Pau-Bagnères de Luchon.Merci d'avance :)

  12. La mairie de Taninges a posté le communiqué suivant sur sa page Facebook.

    "VOIRIE : Route départementale RD328, lieu-dit "La ravine"

    Une commission de sécurité a eu lieu ce jeudi 23 juin. Les travaux pour la mise en place d'un alternat avec alerte en cas d'éboulement sont en phase d'être terminés. Un arrêté pour une éventuelle ouverture dans les prochains jours est en train d'être préparé, et doit être validé par tous les services concernés (état, département, commune). Nous tiendrons informé dès que nous aurons une date officielle d'ouverture."

    On y apprend pas grand chose, si ce n'est qu'un système d'alerte en cas d'éboulement a été mis en place (un peu comme ce qui est en place au col de Larche par exemple) et peut fermer la route à tout moment. Cela doit être validé par les autorité compétentes.

    Cela n'empêche pas que le risque d'éboulement existe toujours et pour le moment ni la mairie ni la préfecture n'ont communiqué sur le passage du Tour de France, ainsi que de l'Etape du Tour. Quelque chose me dit que la question doit être sérieusement étudiée, mais qu'une communication définitive ne sera fait que quelques jours avant le passage de chaque épreuve. Il serait embêtant que pour une section de 300 mètres en descente, le col soit totalement annulé.

  13. @Sorin Flo #11 : en ce qui concerne la fermeture des cols, le mieux est soit de se renseigner sur place ou à défaut de s'adresser à la préfecture de police du département en question. Parfois, on trouve des informations aussi sur le site de la préfecture ou du département en question.

    | Thomas Vergouwen | sunday 26 June 2016 at 17:18:55

  14. Les zones de ravitaillements indiqué sont elles juste car je ne trouve aucunes autres informations là dessus nulle part?

    | Corentin | sunday 26 June 2016 at 21:50:06

  15. @Corentin #14 je m'efforce de ne publier que des informations justes. Sauf changement de dernière minute ce sont donc bien les zones de ravitaillement indiquées sur ces cartes qui sont les bonnes :).

    | Thomas Vergouwen | sunday 26 June 2016 at 22:12:35

  16. Petit détail dans l'immense travail accompli, le point de départ réel de l'étape 16 semble avoir été oublié.

    | Gaston_78 | monday 27 June 2016 at 16:24:31

  17. Bonjour Linkinitoo,
    La cyclo Jpp vient d'être interdite de passer par le col de la Ramaz, ils doivent emprunter leur itinéraire de contournement. Affaire à suivre...

    | Olivier73 | monday 27 June 2016 at 20:42:17

  18. Merci @Olivier73 pour cette information. Cette cyclosportive ayant lieu le 5 juillet, ce n'est vraiment pas loin de l'étape du Tour.

    La commune de Taninges s'est exprimée sur Facebook et ils attendent cette semaine les informations définitives de la préfecture. Mais si pour une "petite" cyclo ne peut pas passer par la Ramaz (et ces derniers n'ont pas choisi l'itinéraire alternatif par l'Encrenaz), pour l'Étape du Tour et le Tour de France, c'est mal barré.

  19. Geweldig Thomas Vergouwen! Dank voor het vele werk.

  20. Derniers rebondissements dans l'affaire de la Ramaz :

    http://collectifmieusserandevsommand.over-blog.com/2016/07/le-tour-de-france-a-la-ramaz-c-est-oui-mais.html

    Le Tour de France passera bien par la Ramaz et empruntera le parcours prévu.
    Par contre la cyclosportive reliera directement Mieussy à Taninges par la vallée.
    Snif, je ne ferais donc pas la "vrai" étape du Tour. Bapt, pas trop déçu?
    J'ai vu que l'on était dans les sas très proches. Je suis dossard 14899, il m'a semblé voir que tu étais dossard 15000 quelque chose. Je vais devoir attendre plus de 2h à Megève pour prendre le départ.

    | Olivier73 | friday 01 July 2016 at 9:34:57

  21. Hallo Thomas,
    weer fantastisch werk. Ik zal er de komende drie weken volop van genieten.
    Heel erg bedankt.

    Peter

  22. I was wondering where in the world do you find the exact start/finish points? I've searched everywhere on the net. Where I can find maps they usually have such a huge icon overlay that takes up several square km so it leaves absolutely no way to determine. Any help appreciated and TIA.

    I like to take your open your paths, start from the finish spot and go backwards to put points at every km to go. Sure takes some time but that way it is so easy to follow along on tv.

  23. Hello!
    Très bon boulot! Cela dit attention car il y a quelques erreurs de parcours, notamment sur l'étape se terminant à Berne
