Gearing up for the Tour de France

If you’re thinking about where to take your campervan or motorhome on holiday this year, you don’t even have to travel overseas to take in one of Europe’s greatest sporting events.

The Tour de France cycle race will be starting in Sheffield, Yorkshire, in 2014 and travelling down through Cambridgeshire and Essex before competitors cross over the channel.

Those of you who’d like to cheer on the British riders – including reigning champion Chris Froome – can find out where to pitch your caravan or motorhome at campsites along the route by clicking here.

You could even find yourself enjoying a sweet treat on your holiday, as Yummy Yorkshire dairy farm is just one of the businesses close to the Tour de France’s path that is planning to open a temporary campsite for avid cycling fans.

Wherever you choose to holiday, don’t forget to make sure your caravan insurance or motorhome insurance policy is up to date before you set off. To get a quote on your insurance call Freephone 0800 614 849. You can also get a caravan insurance quotation online.
