TdS Kids World
Young people are particularly important to the Tour de Suisse and its partners. In collaboration with our partners, we will be setting up three different, exciting courses on the start weekend and also on the finish weekend for two days in each case. The goal is to give children and young people a taste of various cycling disciplines, providing support in the form of specialists and technicians.
Nimm2 Kids Challenge
On four of the stages, 3- to 5-year-olds on balance bikes will be invited to take part in a "sprint" in front of the massed spectators. The kids will ride the last 150 metres before the professionals reach the finish. Spurred on by the spectators, the little ones will reach the finish line of the Tour de Suisse to great celebration. It makes no difference where they finish – it's the experience that matters.
TdS Bike Expo
From 2015 the Tour de Suisse will also be presenting a Bike Expo. With no entrance fee, the event offers visitors a broad range of cycling-related offers over two days each on the start and finish weekend.
Experience emotions at the Tour de Suisse up close and personal as a VIP or take advantage of Switzerland’s largest and most popular sporting event for a visit with clients, employees or colleagues. The combination of top-class catering and exciting views of what is happening in the race guarantees unforgettable moments.
Tour de Suisse Village
The Village (“tent town”) is set up every day near the finishing line of each Tour de Suisse stage. Spectators can come and enjoy the give-aways, competitions and other attractions organised by the event sponsors.
The publicity caravan is one of the highlights of the Tour de Suisse, particularly for the spectators on the streets and at the start and finishing lines. The publicity caravan sets off on the official route across Switzerland about an hour before the professional cyclists.
