With 10 days to go here’s a downloadable calendar of the Tour de France for your electronic diary or smartphone with brief details of each stage.
This format proves very popular, perhaps there’s a big demand to schedule work and social life around the crucial days? With this in mind each stage has a star rating, a subjective take on the stage’s importance to the race, whether drama or likely importance for the overall classification. If you really want to clear the diary note Stages 1, 9, 15, 19, 20 and 21 will be broadcast on TV live from start to finish.
If you’re familiar with ical files, here’s the URL for the ics file:
Save the ics / iCal / iCalendar file and you can import it into your electronic diary. One or two clicks and it’s on your iPhone / Outlook etc. The default settings have alerts turned off but check your device to avoid annoyance.
Alternatively if you use Google then see calendar below and the +Google Calendar link on the bottom-right. Note this method can work with Android phones when the iCal file might not.
If you want more help on how to make use of this, see the inrng.com/calendar page which has the calendar for all the main men’s and women’s pro races in 2016 and a fuller explanation of how to put a calendar into Outloook, an iPhone, your diary etc.
