Once known as Segessera and boasting a stunning wooden gallery around its Saint-Pierre church, Bar-sur-Aube also stands out for the houses that were built by the merchants who traded at its great fairs in the Middle Ages. It’s the French capital of hemp and the home of the philosopher Gaston Bachelard. For almost half a century, Bar-sur-Aube has also vibrated to the rhythm of two wheels towards the end of July thanks to its renowned and frantic nocturne. As a consequence of its hosting in rapid succession of a stage of the Tour de l’Avenir in August and the women’s Tour in 2022, cycling has tightened its grip on Bar-sur-Aube even further
