Welcome to Cured’s 7th edition of the Cured de France!

The Tour de France is one of those summer events that brings people together. Something other than the weather to talk about with strangers on the street, an excuse to head over to a friends house with coffee in hand at 6 in the morning or cancel evening plans to spend the night on the couch with a glass of wine.

There is perhaps no better way to beat the summer heat than by watching some of the world’s greatest athletes fly up mountain passes and wind through tiny French villages. Cured just so happens to have a rather unique insight into the tour, owing to the fact that owner Will Frishckorn has himself not only ridden in the Tour de France, but has also eaten his way across the entire country during his racing career and knows the best, and most interesting, offerings from every region. In honor and celebration of this year’s Tour de France, we’ve put together a tour of our own…one that is a bit more accessible for the mere mortal. All you need to partake is a love a cheese, a passion for French wine, and a good appetite.

As the cyclists make their way around France, so do we, only our trip is a bit more pleasing to the palate and less punishing to the legs…

HOW IT WORKS:

Will breaks the Tour into eight stages, each corresponding to 3-4 days of racing. Each region corresponds with a cheese and a beverage. As the riders make their way around France you’ll follow along, feeling thankful that while they’re suffering through the hills you’re enjoying cheese, wine, and entertainment from the comfort of your own home. With 7 flat stages, 5 hilly stages, 7 mountainous stages with 5 epic mountain finishes, not to mention 2 time trial stages, 1 individual and 1 team, this 106thTour de France promises to be an exciting, and truly delicious course. Starting, and finishing, with Champagne seems only appropriate this year and by the time the riders pass under the Arc d’Triomphe, we promise this tour will test your stamina as well as your taste buds from stage to stage to stage.
