    Yes me and my eldest son are going to watch the last three stages,the last of the mountain stages on the 23rd, individual time trial in Grenoble on the 24th then a dash to Paris for the finish, we caught the start of it last year and caught the bug.
    Will you be there ?

    planning our rote on Friday so will let you know if we'll be in the area. Never been to watch before so not sure how soon before the event we need to get there - imagine it will be very busy!

    I have been told that some arrive up to 3/4 days early on the mountain stages to get a suitable/safe parking spot. Its been on my to do list for a couple of years now hopefully next year we just might manage it.
