L'Étape du Tour de France has been working for years to make an impact through its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policy (find out more here: + lien vers la page L’Etape engagée), but we need your help.
Please respect the unique environment that hosts L'Étape du Tour de France. We still see too much litter on the roadsides and too many cases of irresponsible behaviour on our roads.
From now, any rider caught disposing of waste outside the areas set up for such purpose will be disqualified.
A left-luggage service is available in the starting area. If you want to, you can leave your belongings here in the morning of the race, before heading to your starting section. Remember to attach the label contained in your race number envelope to your bag before handing it over to our organising teams. Do not leave any valuable items in your bag.
A secured area will be set up in the Gymnase du Sauvay, avenue Joseph Fontanet, next to the village, to drop off your bike so that you can take advantage of the entertainment and activities and our exhibitors’ and partners’ stands.
