I'm brainstorming logistics as to how one would be able to ride a full Tour de France in the month of July while watching as much of it as possible - at some point in my life I'd like to go hosteling/backpacking/riding my way through the Tour de France.
Is it possible to ride stages early in the morning before the stage begins such that we can watch the pro's finish from a distance? Or is that just not possible.
In addition is it possible to carry everything you need (water bottles, extra clothing, shoes, tubes, etc) in a backpack while doing this? Any thoughts on how laundry would work? What other necessities am I obviously omitting?
Thanks all, just starting to brainstorm the how-to's about doing something like this!
