I'm going to France this summer and would really like to follow the tour, or as many have recommended, part of the tour. However, I've never been to France and don't speak French. I'm a 28 year old male from Santa Barbara and would love to meet up with some people and share car/ RV rental expenses. Unfortunately it seems that most people going over there aren't very keen on the idea of having a total stranger accompany them on their trip.
Does anyone have any ideas about how I can possibly meet up with some people? Any good web sites, anything that might help? I won't have my bike with me, but I'd really like to follow along for the spectacle of the event. Any advice is appreciated!
