Here you can, among other things, watch the battle for the green jersey on the Sprint challenge that will cross the city. You can cheer the racers and give them some strength between 11:45 and 14:15.
Children can look forward to a bouncy castle, face painting or making their own L'Etape Czech Republic-themed pins and badges in the Fanpark. Adults will also find something to do, as they can try out a number of unconventional bikes together with the children, or enjoy a professionally moderated programme accompanied by music.
Bikes will of course be available for rent on site. But to make sure you get the right one, we recommend bringing your own bikes, the ones you are used to.
If you are coming to the event by car, our recommended parking can be found here. However, when travelling there and back, remember that some roads will be closed due to the race.
Refreshments will be available at the adjacent campsite.
Don't miss the chance to take part in the Czech premiere of L'Etape by Tour de France and come and enjoy a nice Saturday at a unique event!
And for those who might now regret not standing at the start? It's never too late! Buy your entry fee and join the battle for the yellow, green and polka dot jerseys.
Looking forward to seeing you!
