Utrecht

The fourth city of the Netherlands hosts the biggest university of the country where close to 30 000 students gather and often ride there on their bikes. In Utrecht, cycling is like a second nature. Based on such a success, the municipality has launched the construction of a monumental bicycle parking, the biggest in the world that will welcome in front of the train station 12 500 bikes throughout 2016. It'll actually be beside this temple honouring cycling that the finish of stage 1 will take place.
