Those of you who know me, know that I love watching the Tour de France. We are moving to Switzerland, which is conveniently located right next to France! We are moving during the Tour. This is really a no brainer. I need to figure out how to watch the Tour in person. Any ideas?
The most logical stages to try to watch are those that are closest to Switzerland. These are:
- Thursday, July 21 (Pinerolo > Galibier-Serre Chevalier) – a nice high mountain stage
- Friday, July 22 (Mondane Valfréjus > Alpe d’Huez) – a mountaintop finish on an historic mountain
- Saturday, July 23(Grenoble > Grenoble) – individual time trial
I realize that I am a dork, but this is something on the bucket list. Plus, it would provide good material for this blog.
Right now, the plan is to head to France and picnic. I will keep you posted.
