Le Tour 2020 postponed until August!

LATEST UPDATE ON TOUR DE FRANCE FROM APRIL 15th: due to the corona-virus pandemic, it has been decided that our beloved Tour de France will be postponed to August. Le Grand Depart is now scheduled for August 29th in Nice, and ends in Paris on September 20th, 2020. The official website has not yet been updated, but there is an article on France24English. 

Having just watched the live presentation of the Tour de France 2020 with all its stages, we at inthevendee.com are excited! How wonderful it is to live in a place where every year we have the opportunity to travel to the spectacle that is Le Tour, or, if you just give it a year or so chances are it will come virtually on the doorstep wherever you may live. Now WE, are lucky enough to live in the Vendee, one of France's most popular cycling destinations and home of the Harmonie Mutuelle-Vendee cycling team. Fist-pump!

Now, they did announce to talk about the tour, take pictures of the presentation to share on social media etc and so, Monsieur Preudhomme, best tour director ever, don't mind if we share the good news that next year our Vendeen residents and tourists will not have to travel far to steep themselves in your circus, with our growing reader-base.

Detail - see below schedule and map:

Stage 10 on 07/07/2020: from Ile d'Oleron via the Marais and La Rochelle to Ile de Re (St. Martin de Re) 
Stage 11 on 08/07/2020: from Chatelaillon-Plage to Poitiers

Dear readers, cyclists, caravan... the whole circus... See you somewhere along the route!
