The plot of Tour de France 2023 was unveiled this Thursday, October 27, 2022. Once again, it boasts a south-westerly route (it also departs from the Spanish Basque Country). AND Lot and Garonne alcove in the heart of this southwest.

Zoom in on step 7

Stage 7, on Friday 7 July 2023, will connect Mont-de-Marsan and Bordeaux… it’s coming.

Information only: length, 170 km; type, flat.

Intuition and hope

We then looked at the map to try to guess which towns the peloton would pass through.

First intuition (and hope): it will inevitably pass through the Lot-et-Garonne.

Additionally, there is no route between prefectural cities Landes az Gironde does not exceed 135 km. At least if we respect the shape roughly drawn on the famous map with a yellow background that rounds towards the east.

Bingo, we’re going east, it’s 47! Here we are right in the Landes de Gascogne lot-et-garonnaise.

Our tests

Attaching the southwest map to the map of said route… We see that the route enters the Lot-et-Garonne.

We went on. We covered the 170 km route between Mont-de-Marsan and Bordeaux. Again, this corresponds to passing through us. Close to Pindères, Houeillès, Casteljaloux…

Well… not far from the brand new Center Parc.


Let’s be careful. These are only hypotheses: the routes must be verified by the relevant departments before they are fully validated.

Anyway, a Tour de France pass in Lot-et-Garonne is always a celebration. We all remember 2017 when Marmande cruised through the peloton.
