What's on in Paris - Sports events - 2016 Tour de France Finish
On Sunday, July 24 the Tour will end in Paris http://www.letour.com/le-tour/2016/us/stage-21.html. For the 1st time since 1984 the final stage will run from the Château de Chantilly, north of Paris to the Arc de Triomphe. This grand finale is always worth watching even if you are not a cycling fan – it’s the end of a long [ 3 week] and hard event and although the winner may already be decided, the final circuits around the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées will be quite the spectacle.
The long line of riders start their circuit in central Paris along the Rue de Rivoli, past the Place de Concorde then on towards the Arc de Triomphe via the Champs-Elysées. They actually finish half way up the 'Champs' then continue to do several laps. The route goes around the 'Arc', back down the 'Champs' along the Quai des Tuileries to the Louvre before doubling back to the Place de la Concorde and along the 'Champs' to the 'Arc'. Usually several laps are taken before the conclusion and celebrations along the Champs – see http://bit.ly/29sEfaR
