So I've got about 3 weeks of leave that I'll end up losing if I don't take some time off work by Fall of 07. I was thinking today as I was putzing around cooling down from a hard ride that it'd be cool to hop on a MAC (aka free for me since I'm military) flight and go over to Europe, and hang around spectating at Tour, the Giro or the Vuelta.
I'd be going solo, and was thinking it'd be fun to do a race or four while I was mucking around the continent. I speak a little German and even less Spanish - but given my past experience over there, I think I could get around okay.
Has anyone done anything similar to this? Any suggestions?
