Tour de france 2013

Discussion in 'France' started by mandy, Dec 15, 2012.

  1. We are planning to catch two stages of next years tour always wanted to...and having watched the time trial and men's race from the roadside @ the Olympics this year we decided to plan our holiday around it and support Wiggo

    we plan to get to Lake Annecy on the 15th having had a leisurely two day drive down.....and a stop in the beautiful town of Beaune and be set up for stages 19 & 20

    Friday, July 19th Bourg-d’Oisans > Le Grand-Bornand 204 km
    Saturday, July 20th Annecy > Annecy - Semnoz 125 km

    I've booked a campsite near lake Annecy for a week......though we will get up onto stage 19 on the day before[2 if necessary] and sleep by the side of the road in the bus.. the stage has got some big climbs..[.having hopefully cycled some of it on the 16th and 17th.]
    On the 20th the stage comes round the lake so hopefully we should have found a good spot to cycle to from the campsite .
    Then we have another seven days to tour before returning to le chunnel

    Has anyone else got any plans to go?
  2. I always go ,the Pyrenees stages are only a shortish drive, one day I would like to do the other side of France and might pop in to see my mate from Switzerland....

    Enjoy yourself .... :-*
