The famous university city provides the stunning setting for the beginning of the third chapter of the Grand Départ. This stage is mainly flat and will take the cyclists south on the roads of Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex.
The race arrives in Greater London from the northeast, via Epping Forest. Once it has passed the Olympic Park, it will head for the centre of the British capital for its finale against a background of picture postcard scenes including the Thames, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey…
As with the prologue of the Tour de France in 2007 and the 2012 Olympic cycle road races, the final stretch will take the competitors through St James’s Park, in front of Buckingham Palace for a spectacular finish on The Mall.
