    Took my little girl and joined some other american friends who live near me here in the South of France to

    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?

    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.

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