Thanks! The parade appears to really go zipping through the crowds. How long does everyone hang out after the peleton passes? Is there a big traffic jam trying to get out of there?

Thanks--I really enjoyed that!

I would say about 90% of the people get up and go. Big traffic jam depending on the road and and amount of people there. The other 10% are still hanging out with their picnics and food and just sitting back drinking.

Thanks for sharing. That looks like a great and fairly unique memory for you and your family.

Thanks! I found myself leaning towards the monitor, straining to see the riders. :D:thumb:

I hope the angle of the peleton is because you decide to watch the tour now in a 1 sq in view finder.
