Three zones entirely devoted to the Tour de France will be opened in July in Copenhagen, Saint-Etienne and Lourdes to welcome fans of the world's biggest cycling event free of charge.

With the help of the host towns/cities and partners, the Tour de France will install 3 Fan Parks to offer a unique experience to fans of the Tour. The Copenhagen Fan Park will welcome visitors from Wednesday 29th June to Friday 1st July to enjoy the Grand Départ. Fans of the Tour will also have a similar opportunity in Saint-Etienne (Zénith western car park) on Thursday 14th, Friday 15th and Saturday 16th July. The Tour's Fan Park will also set up camp in Lourdes (at the Palais des Congrès), from Wednesday 20th to Thursday 21st July.
On the programme: broadcasting of the stages on a big screen, discovery of local specialities, cycling training tracks for children (Savoir Rouler à Vélo cycling proficiency and pumptrack), road safety awareness workshops, introductions to bike repairs, etc. Fans of the Tour de France will also be able to hone their knowledge of the Tour thanks to dedicated quizzes and everyone can head back home with Tour de France gifts.

At the Fan Parks but also in other stage hosting towns/cities*, "Les Ateliers du Tour" learning zones will be set up to welcome young cyclists and help them to discover cycling. An introductory area will allow them to learn how to handle a bicycle and to pass block 1 of the "Savoir Rouler à Vélo" cycling proficiency programme, conducted by instructors from the French Federation of Cycling, while a workshop will teach them useful maintenance gestures. Taking care of your bike also means ensuring its protection: a stand will provide tips on how to lock it up securely with a bike chain; engraving of identification plates will also be free of charge. Of course, the focus will also be on safety issues, both in terms of equipment (helmets, Hi-Viz vests, etc.), traffic rules and lessons for everyday cycling. "Les Ateliers du Tour" will be stopping of in Dunkirk, Lausanne and Carcassonne.
