Checkpoint and finish point Nice

Nice at the Côte d’Azur is checkpoint and finish point at route km 5370. This year Nice is also the final finish at the Tour de France, the biggest yearly sport event on the world. The first time ever, that the tour will not finish in Paris. On this occasion Nice changed this year our finish monument.

Nice is also checkpoint and finish point of the 45-SouthWest bicycle adventure. The NorthCape-Tarifa and the 45-SouthWest routes cross each other at the checkpoint Nice. Otherwise 45-SouthWest is a very different route.

Col du Galibier

Five months until the start of the 2024 NorthCape-Tarifa.

Currently, the mountain passes in the Alps are blanketed with meters of snow.

The photos were taken yesterday at -10 degrees Celsius at Col du Lautaret, featuring the refuge Napoleon and the view towards the mighty Col du Galbier. The third photo captures La Grave, located 12km down from Col du Lautaret, a resting point for riders in previous editions.

New Checkpoint

New for 2024! We’re adding a brand-new checkpoint along the route. As our riders pedal south through Lithuania towards the charming city of Šiauliai, they’ll hit the Hill of Crosses, home to Checkpoint 2. This iconic spot tells the amazing story of Lithuania’s cultural and historical richness, creating a unique and memorable stopping point.

Along the Baltic coast

The Latvian journey begins by guiding cyclists along the Baltic coast. As it nears Riga, the route turns inland, weaving through scenic farmlands. Continuing through the suburbs, it ensures a safe ride into Riga, a historic city with well-maintained cycling paths. The route then explores more rolling countryside and quiet backroads, progressing towards Lithuania.
