See the best of British with Europcar and the Tour de France!

You don’t need to travel to France to get your fill of cycling fever this summer. This year’s Tour de France kicks off this weekend, right here in beautiful Blighty. To mark the occasion, we’ve created these extra special maps for Stages 1-3 of The Grand Depart 2014 from Leeds to London, so you can be sure you’re up to scratch on your two-wheeled facts and stats.

So have you ever wondered how many sheep it would take to form a continuous row of furry followers from Leeds to Harrogate?  Lost sleep over the number of stacked margarine containers it would take to equal the lofty heights of Buttertubs Pass? Pondered how many Yorkshire Puddings you could safely work off as a contender for Le Tour’s Stage 1 yellow jersey?

Probably not. But we bet you are now, right?

Check out our fantastic maps to find out more and get your fill of Le Tour trivia. And if you’re feeling inspired to grab a slice of the action for yourself, pick up a hire car from your nearest Europcar outlet and head down to one of our ten top spots to see the Tour de France in Britain.

We don’t know about you, but we don’t plan on missing a moment…
