Plenty of riders have already made their way to Bilbao, with more arriving through tomorrow ahead of the full team briefing in the evening. It’s hot and beautiful and there’s a tangible buzz of excitement in the air. Some have made it as far as the Gugenheim, others as far as the nearest bike shop/bar/restaurant for tapas. It’s a chance to soak up the Spanish culture.
Bilbao has embraced all things yellow and cycling! There are wonderful decorations throughout the city helping to make us really feel a part of the pro event. As we travel through Northern Spain and into France, we can expect to see more and more of these (always a good excuse for a fun photo-bomb).
Our fantastic team of mechanics, physios, massage therapists, medics, and drivers are getting into position. It’s already been a long week for them!
Thanks to all our brilliant partners who have helped us to get this far. Our bike hubs who help us provide our bike transport service from the UK and home again, Orro Bikes who have provided our fleet of beautiful spare bikes, Vegware who provide our compostable plates, cups, bowls and cutlery, Clinell who donated all our hand gels and wipes, Boundless who have provided us with some fantastic healthy pocket snacks for our feed stops and a total of 5 great vehicle hire companies throughout the UK and France. We couldn’t keep this Tour circus rolling without you – thank you!
For those still to arrive, we wish you all safe and smooth journeys.
Vive Le Tour!
