    Looks like stage 16 for us as they pass over the Jura. Will be on the way back from the Dordogne so should be able to squeeze that in, or maybe the day before if the fishing is poor....

    By that stage of the race we should have a pretty good idea who is going to win:)

    In the right area so are going to try and get to stage 5 on Wednesday if we can find somewhere to park towards the end of the stage.

    We made last minute decision so planning to drive along stage 5 route today (Monday) to try and find somewhere to park up ready to see Wednesdays stage, fingers crossed. Great pics, hope we get to see it come through

    We are like you @Tweedie off to take a drive today along the Wednesday stage, as it's finishing in a ski station we suspect there will be plenty of parking. We will look out for you.

    We managed to get parked at the col du perthus just over the summit, got one of the last spots near the summit. Loads of Mo Ho's driving up & down looking for a space.

    I heading off to Toulouse tomorrow...

    Cross into France near Hendaye and then turn right.

    Hope I don't hold up any pesky cyclists.

    JJ :cool:
