2014 Tour De France coming to Cambridge and Essex
23 November 2013
It was recently announced that the opening stage (or Grand Départ) of the Tour De France 2014 will begin in England and pass through Cambridge and beautiful Suffolk on the stage from Cambridge to London.
This means it will bring it within touching distance of the Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa when it passes through Great Shelford, Duxford and Sawston.
The Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa is preparing for this major event by upgrading our already large car park, which can hold up to 120 cars and has no height restriction.
The 101st edition of the Tour de France will begin in Leeds on July 5th. We already know that the first phases of the race will centre around Yorkshire, including Harrogate and Sheffield, then heading south to Cambridge and London - this really will be an exciting opening to the world famous tour - as Great Britain's Chris Froome and Sir Bradley Wiggins both aim to kick-start their campaigns with good times in the challenging opening stage.
The race comes to Cambridge on Monday 7th July for a 170km ride to London
