Watching the Tour live

Hi all,

I will be in France (Paris) during the Tour de France this year and would like to go and see one of the stages on July 11th. My questions might sound stupid: how does one do that? Is it enough to drive to the road where the Tour passes, park and wait? Any tips?

Thanks in advance.

the good: you're close enough to the the race that you won't have a long drive.

the bad: it will be a boring stage, and imo not really worth going to, seeing as you'll spemd the better part of the day to see 2-3 minutes of them flying past.

ymmv.

check the official tour site to find the exact roads they'll be riding on.
