RIDE Media is proud to announce: production of the Official Tour de France Guide 2023 Australian edition is now complete!

Delivered in mid-June, the ‘Tour Guide’ by RIDE is your ultimate preview to the world’s biggest races: the Tour de France (1-23 July) and the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (23-30 July).

(Pre-ordered magazines lodged with Australia Post on Friday 9 June 2023)


The 212-page magazine will be in shops around Australia from mid-June.

The ‘Tour Guide’ is your ideal TV viewing companion with details of all the stages and all the teams for the two big race this July. The Tour de France, starting in Bilbao, Spain on 1 July and finishing in Paris on 23 July; and the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (starting in Clermont-Ferrand on 23 July and finishing with a time trial in Pau on 30 July).

The 2023 Tour Guide by RIDE Media includes a giant pull-out poster featuring a detailed map of France and the site of the Grand Départ in the Basque Country.

This is the 21st year that the ‘Tour Guide’ has been published by RIDE Media, a tradition that started in 2003 and in 2023, I’m proud of how the magazine looks: great photos, an updated design, lots of cycling, and everything you need to know about the Tour de France. I hope you agree when you get your copy.


  • Complete team lists for #TDF2023 and #TDFF2023
  • Overview of all the riders eligible to start the races (22 teams of 8 riders for the Tour de France; 22 teams of 7 riders for the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift)
  • Comprehensive route information including maps, profile, insights about the regions and the terrain, TV broadcast times and more!
  • Giant pull-out poster featuring a map of the route for the 110th Tour de France, with a fantastic image of two superstars of cycling on the other side…
  • Interviews with the champions from 2022: Jonas Vingegaard and Annemiek van Vleuten.
  • History, scenery, profiles of the favourites – all in a huge 212-page souvenir magazine!


We would love to reveal more, but we are also keen to maintain a little suspense: so, there’s not yet a preview of the cover as you will find it on the newsstands, but we can reveal the map side of the poster (and say there is a fantastic shot on the other side…).

You can also see the cover of the larger section in this year’s magazine which is devoted to previewing the 2nd edition of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, featuring the champion of the race in 2022, Annemiek van Vleuten.

There is a lot of content in another huge magazine about cycling’s biggest race(s). Get your pre-orders in before 7 June for the free delivery offer (after that there will be a AUD$10 postage and handling fee for orders via ridemedia.com.au), but you will soon be able to find the magazine in shops around Australia and New Zealand.

The tradition continues: the ‘Tour Guide’ by RIDE Media returns this June. Be sure to get your special souvenir edition of Australia’s favourite cycling magazine.

This year marks 21st anniversary of the Australian edition, your ideal TV viewing companion – a huge souvenir-edition magazine that, in 2023, previews both the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift: all the riders, all the teams, all the stages, all the climbs, all the maps, all the history… all the details you need to know about what is always captivating action.

Inside the Tour Guide

Australian cycling fans have come to know all about the Tour de France thanks to the fantastic coverage on SBS television. They also know about the pacing strategy required for weeks of late night viewing. It is testament to the popularity of the event that ratings for the race are so good despite the challenging time slot of the live broadcast in Australia.

We have gotten to know the race, the riders, the tactics, and the terrain… even if only a small percentage of Aussie viewers have actually attended the Tour in person.

The ‘Tour Guide’ helps you follow the action and understand what is next on the itinerary – day after day, week after week… and now race after race. Inside the magazine are rider interviews and profiles, comprehensive team lists, a summary of all the possible starters. You will also find full details of the race route, with maps, profiles, and explanations about the regions visited by Le Tour.

There will be a nod to the history of the men’s race and an overview of the hugely successful first edition of the revised format for the women’s event. And of course there will be all the stunning imagery that you have come to expect from Australia’s biggest and most popular cycling annual.

Come for the competition, stay for the scenery… and the stories that emerge in a stunning setting with some of the world’s finest athletes.

Discover the race route, learn about the teams and the riders, and follow the action this July with RIDE Media’s annual production that will again include a giant pull-out poster featuring the map of the 110th TDF, from Bilbao to Paris (1-23 July).

Also inside the 2023 Official Tour de France Guide is a full preview for the 2nd edition of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (23-30 July). Again: all the teams, all the stages… and, of course, some memories of the fabulous first edition, interviews with the favourites, and other features.

With a little over 100 days to go before the Grand Départ in Spain, get ready for the world’s biggest bike races – Le Tour, men and women… a month of cycling action which will conjure memories to last a lifetime. Get your pre-order in for the ‘Tour Guide’ today.
