The Tour is an epic ride across Europe. From Brussels to Geneva stopping in Paris on the way, we will all visit some of the most beautiful parts of Europe, mix fantastic riding with a little culture and take the opportunity to sample some of the culinary delights on route.
You can ride the whole Tour, or one or two of the three-day stages. Each stage has some great riding. From pavé in the north to climbing in the high alps, the route is varied and challenging. The ride is also intended to be fabulous experience, incorporating breathtaking scenery, quiet country roads and the opportunity to sample fabulous food and wine. And, in the spirit of the Grand Tours of old, we have also designed the ride to take in the outstanding cultural sights, including five World Heritage sites on the way.
However, it isn’t just a bike ride – it is also the opportunity to help improve the lives of people with diabetes, showing what is possible for people with diabetes and demonstrating how innovative technical solutions can address the challenge of managing diabetes. During the Tour a number of leading global technology companies including Orange, Dexcom and Samsung and some innovative technology start-up companies will implement a unique technical solution to support riders during the tour.
Through our partnership with IDF Europe the Tour also works with experts in diabetes, exercise physiology, technology companies, healthcare professionals and patients to learn, share, educate, develop and deploy solutions and knowledge to help people manage their diabetes, liberating them to lead active lifestyles.
Challenging but achievable, the 2015 mHealth Grand Tour will be an experience of a lifetime.
