ETAPE DU TOUR 2012, ACT 2, LOCATION
The 2012 Etape du Tour starts in the town of Pau in South West France, just North of the Pyrenees. It ends in Bagneres de Luchon, after crossing 197km of exciting mountain scenery and ascending 4 major climbs: Aubisque (1700m), Tourmalet (2100m), Aspin (1500m) and Peyresourde (1560m), finishing at Bagneres-de-Luchon.
The IGN TOP 100 MAP no 70 covers the route in great (possibly too much!) detail.
