The magic of the Tour de France comes to the Chilterns
This Chilterns cycling extravaganza takes place on July 14th, fittingly on Bastille Day, France’s national day. This is a great chance to showcase local businesses, who can get involved with this event and the global Tour de France brand in many ways:
- Enter teams of cyclists and even compete in the ‘Corporate Clash’ against other companies across three professionally designed routes through the Chiltern Hills
- Sponsorship and partnership opportunities with L’Etape UK
- Bring staff and clients to the Tour de France Fan Park at Penn House. There are opportunities for local businesses to exhibit – you could put up a marquee and receive VIP hospitality while watching Stage 9 of the Tour de France live on a big screen.
- Decorating the exterior of workplaces along the route and cafes, restaurants and bars offering up French-themed food and drink
