On to the next one ...

In the summer of 2017, it is time to go riding another grand velomobile tour, covering several thousand kilometers over a few weeks, seeing places and people, enjoying the countryside and the roads – and, most of all, coming together again as riders and friends.

This time, velomobiles will roll over France – a Tour de France the cyclophile Français have never seen before. From the start in Trier (Germany), the tour will cover approximately 4,000 km leading riders counterclock-wise across this great country, finishing at Trier three weeks after the start.

The tour will be organised the same way as the previous tour, a private ride, all riders following the same schedule, with each rider assuming full responsibility for his or her own actions. We will be camping as we normally do, and we will have a support van to help out in emergencies and break-downs.

The tour dates are: July 16 - August 5, 2017.

Participation in the tour will be limited to 24 riders. Registration will open on September 5, 2016. All applications will be reviewed and need to be confirmed by the Tour Captain. Riders who have successfully completed the Roll over America Tour and/or the Great Baltic Sea Ride will have priority registration for 3Wheels4France.

All riders need to be fully registered on or before May 1, 2017. After that date, registration is closed. Please also note that there will be no refund of the organisation fee should riders withdraw after May 25, 2017.

All advance information on the tour will be here. Pages on participants, the route, the schedule, and more will be completed as planning proceeds.To view the list of riders see the Riders page, to see the time table, daily destinations and possible places to see the tour, go to the pages Schedule for more information.
