More About the Event

Lourdes is well known as a Pilgrimage site where millions of Catholics travel every year. It’s believed in 1858 the Virgin Mary appeared to a local woman. In July 2023, fans from a range of nationalities and the world’s greatest cyclists will make the pilgrimage to the Pyrenees. They will take on climbs such as the Col du Tourmalet which made its debut in the Tour de France in 1910. Since then, it has seen riders ascend through crowds of fans in an attempt to put their name in Tour de France history books.
