Camping for Tour de France 2014: An Interactive Map

This summer the Tour de France riders start their 3,656 KM journey in the Yorkshire city of Leeds and complete three whole stages on British soil before moving into the races titular homeland.

While this is great news for cycling fans, its even better for hoteliers along the route who have ramped up the price and sold out of rooms thanks to the throng of fans eager to catch a glimpse of the race.

Luckily for those who don't have the budget to blow big bucks on accommodation, there are cheaper alternatives: canvas, campers and caravans.

With the race falling at the peak of British summertime, a weekend away camping at one of the many camp-sites along the racing route would be a great alternative to a stuffy hotel room, and at a fraction of the cost to boot.

This map (put together for our client Salop Leisure) shows the route the race will take, plotted against camp-sites which make viewing the race as convenient as possible. Clicking on a camp-site will give you the address, website and telephone number of the site, as well as a picture surrounding areas taken from Google Street View.

Happy camping!
