The Tour de France will depart from Carcassonne on July 13 at 11:30, from Allées and Place Général de Gaulle. This is just outside la Bastide, at the end of the pedestrian street.

You can see the list of towns and times here. Based on the fact that the tour doesn’t pass through Trébes, I suppose it will go around Place Gambetta and then hook up to la Route Minervois, along the canal, before heading past Pont Rouge and then the D620. But maybe it’ll go up Avenue du Général Leclerc, then take the D6113/rocade est to Pont Rouge and so on. Such details are still evasive. Sigh.

Thanks to midihideaways for the tip about the route!

One thing is sure: we are very well-placed for cycle swag.

  1. I just found your blog. How exciting to have the Tour de France in your town! I went to Carcassonne several years ago and found it such a beautiful place. I have watched the Tour for years, first at home in France while growing up and now I can see it here in Atlanta on live TV. I just looked at my blog and I have the Tour listed on the side and it shows that I posted 13 posts! You could say that I am a fan. I usually won’t travel anywhere in July so I can watch it every day. But, this year, our daughter is getting married in July in California … but they do have TVs there too, fortunately.
