SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE
Each year the organisers arrange a Shuttle Bus service.
The purpose of this is that it allows competitors to leave their cars at the Finish, ready for them when they arrive (under their own steam or even in the “broom wagon” coaches!)
You need to book a place on the Shuttle in advance.
Shuttle busses run on the day before the Etape, between the finish and the start. You leave your bike in the guarded bike park at the start, drive to the finish, then get the bus back to the start, collect your bike and cycle back to your hotel.
There is guarded parking for bikes at the welcome Village at the start. No bikes are allowed on the shuttle busses, which are also intended for drivers only.
