After we’ve seen the stage start, we will offer a guided ride back to Aucun. An option is to ride yesterday’s stage in reverse so return to the hotel via the Hourquette d’Ancizan and the other side of the Tourmalet. This evening we will watch the Euros final at the hotel. It may feature France who will be very keen to win on Bastille day.
