anyone actually been to see the tour in france? i'll be over there in july and am planning to see one stage. it'll be a flat stage...would like to see the mountains but the schedule doesn't work for me.
mostly wondering how early to be there. planning to be at the finish, which is supposed to be around 5-5:30 pm. any advice appreciated. thanks!
Hi, we too are planning to try to view stage stages 10 & 12 somewhere along the routes. I've scoped out the route on Google maps etc. and hoped to get mid route by driving through the back roads without trying to use the route itself before it closes.
My question, if anyone can help is, are the side roads blocked off a good distance back from the junctions or are the roads open up to the junctions where they meet with the actual route (D766 on stage 10 and D30 on stage 12).
