Ride the 2013 Tour de France route

The 100th Tour de France will begin on the French island of Corsica on 29 June and end with an evening finish on the Champs-Elysees in Paris on 21 July.

The route covers 3,360km and is more mountainous than 2012, so may favour climbers such as Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck, rather than Bradley Wiggins.

The 32-year-old became the first Briton to win the prestigious race.
