Le Tour 2014

Here is a map of the 2014 Tour de France:

As you can see, the race begins in England and also crosses into Belgium and Spain.  Notably absent are stages along the Atlantic, in the center of the country or in the western part, save near where it crosses into Spain.  Also, from looking at the map--and my own experience riding in many of the areas through which the Tour will pass--I expect this year's race to be more mountainous than average.

To all of the racers, I say bonne route.  And, if not this year, I hope to go and see the race again.
