#TDF2024 #TDFF2024 // Official Guide (AUS Edition)


 We know about the Tour. We enjoy the tradition, the contest, the scenery, the history, the challenge, the stories that emerge, and the conversations that are sparked because of a bike race.

But there is always more to learn about an event that has become an iconic part of the sporting calendar. And that’s why RIDE Media first published the Official Tour de France Guide in Australia back in 2003.

As part of the celebrations for the Centenaire a souvenir magazine was made 21 years ago. It was well received by readers, and another annual tradition began. The ‘Tour Guide’ has been published every year since 2003 and it will return in 2024.

It is a big magazine. It will again include a giant pull-out poster featuring the race route. It is the ultimate preview of The Big Races –Tour de France and Le Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift.

It is your ideal TV viewing companion.

It is now possible to pre-order your copy. Click here, fill in your details, and then – when it’s hot off the press around three weeks before the race – the magazine will be bagged and sent direct to your door.

Order before 3 June for FREE DELIVERY.



The Tours de France of 2024 are separated by three weeks. The first race begins in Italy at the end of June and ends in Nice on 21 July. Then comes a pause for the Olympic Games. Once the medals are decided and the closing ceremony complete, it’s time for the second stanza of Le Tour, the one for the femmes.

Round two begins in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift starts on the flat roads of Zuid Holland before aiming south, via celebrated cycling terrain in Belgium, eventually arriving in France on the fourth day. Then, on the final weekend, the #TDFF2024 hits the mountains of the Alps. Saturday to Le Grand Bornand; Sunday to l’Alpe d’Huez!

Will you be watching?

Will you be in Australia and staying up late night after night after night after night?

Do you remember your first encounter with Le Tour? Did you fall for a bike race and all its trappings? Is it now part of an annual tradition? And, importantly, will you be ready for the action?

The original concept of the Tour de France was to “ignite the passion” of sport fans, to provide a showcase of something beautiful, something that was relatively new back when it all began in 1903, and something that remains special all these years later… something called cycling.

Bicycles and the race have evolved dramatically over the span of time that Le Tour has been contested and in 2024 it continues to ignite passions while also achieving many of the event’s original goals. It tests the abilities of athletes, their stamina and determination. It also exposes people around the world to scenery that is captivating.

No route of the race has ever been the same. There have been 110 editions of Le Tour de France Hommes, and the tradition of the European summer continues in 2024, albeit with one dramatic change: Paris will be absent from the itinerary. Instead of the French capital, it will be Nice.

Nice, host of the Grand Départ in 2020 – the only TDF in history to be contested in autumn not summer, September not July – will be the site of the final stage, a time trial, in 2024.

There’s one thing about the Tours de France we know for sure. Much more is yet to unfold as the biggest race of the year approaches. Get your preview of the #TDF and #TDFF, and discover the route, the riders, the history, and the scenery in your collectible magazine this June.

Stay tuned. There’s always more to say about the Tours de France.

Of course, if you live in Australia, you will also be able to buy it from your local newsagent. Expect to see it in the shops about a fortnight before the Grand Départ.
