- route markers for tour de france stage 1
anyone have any latest info on when the signs will go up to mark the route of stage one of the tour?
was looking on the tour website and it seems to hit a couple of quite main roads.
will the sign posts avoid these and take you along a quieter road?

So, you want to avoid the tour route? Interesting first post.
If the OP wishes to ride the route and follow the arrows it does make sense. From the Tour point of view closed roads mean every road is a quiet road. Well apart from the caravan!
If you really don’t want to follow the exact route fine, but the route is what it is. Look at a map and figure out if there are sections you would rather not ride and what the alternative is.Posted 4 years agoollycyclesMember
my point was that it seems a little risky directing novice/groups of “lets do that tour de france thing it will be fun ” along some of the A roads right next to the m1. the first place i dropped the street view guy on the a61 there was three lorries.Posted 4 years ago
just curious if they were signing the exact route or skipping a few of the more potentioally dangerous spots.mattsccmMember
Are you suggesting that it is to be pre-marked for recreational use prior to the event? If not, why should it follow anything other than the route itself?Posted 4 years ago
If there is a plan to have it marked as a recreational ride then I guess it could do either. why not wait to see what the powers at be decide to do.
