Tour de France iCal Calendar

Want to know when every Tour de France stage is on and need to plan daily life around them? Here’s the calendar to view or download to your phone.

All stages come with the day’s timing from KM0 to the forecast finish so you can plan any meetings around them. These have been entered in the local time for the race and normally they adjust to your device’s time zone. Obviously the finish time will vary according to the day, the used here is the central forecast from the organisers.

There’s a subjective star rating from 1-3 to suggest the most important or exciting days but stay tuned, a dull stage can come alive if there’s mountains and some days could have hectic starts.

Both the men’s Tour and the women’s Tour are included here… but the timings for the women’s race are not published yet, so for now these stages are just listed as daily events. By default any alerts and alarms are switched off but double-check after importing.

    Familiar blogs which are basically the equivalent of an advent calendar counting down to the big day.

  2. I appreciate the old-school pre-Zuckerberg philosophy of this website: anyone can download and post anonymously without javascript, long may it continue.

    • I still don’t understand why being able to post anonymously is such a big deal. I get why INRNG may want to hide his identity, but the posters of comments?

      • It’s probably not a big deal but there are not many free cycling websites with open comments these days. Nor does this site purport to cover pro cycling but the main reason is really to to install 336 tracking cookies on your device and farm your data. It’s just an old fashioned blog.

        It can help the conversation if people pick a username but up to you. Feedback and discussion are welcome. Arguments less so. The Tour seems to bring new readers and/or heightened tempers so we’ll see what happens, the comments zapper will be wielded, indiscriminately if need be.

        • It’s YOUR blog so if someone doesn’t like it, they’ll get a prompt 100% refund and all their posts removed.
          But I’ll continue to put my name on ’em, if I wouldn’t post it under my name I wouldn’t post it….though maybe you should define the difference between “discussion” and “argument”?

          • “Arguments and discussion both are the noun which involves people talking with one another and telling what they think, feel or know to be true. Argument generally means an angry disputes or disagreement whereas discussion has much more positive fell to it.”

            “Although we share ideas in both of them, they are still different in meaning. Therefore, we cannot use them interchangeably. When we use ‘argument’, we refer to a kind of conflict, but when we use ‘discussion’, we are simply referring to an exchange of ideas and perspectives.”

            My hot take is that it is no longer a discussion but an argument when it is more important for a commentator to take a stance than to listen to what others might have to say or to how others may view things.

            PS I´m painfully aware that my pointing a finger at anyone in particular would not be too far from the proverbial pot calling the kettle black.

      • As someone who works in the cycling industry, I do appreciate having the anonymous comment option for those occasions that I’d like to express an opinion that might not be shared or appreciated by my employer. I don’t do it often, but it is a nice privilege. Thank you, Inner Ring. Your blog is an asset to the industry and a pleasure to read.
