Tour de France

2 Replies

I am hoping to take my family to see the Tour on Wednesday, I have checked the route map and the time schedule but does anybody know of a good spot to watch the race, is it better to be in a village or just along the roadside? I will be coming from Carcassonne, so ideally would like to view it before it goes too far down towards Perpignan. Any suggestions or tips would be most welcome.many thanksJo

Sorry, I just saw your post. It's too late to respond, but for future reference... watching from a village is nice as you're sheltered from the sun and may be able to find a cafe that is showing the Tour on the TV. But if you can find an uphill spot on the roadside you'll get to see a bit more of the riders (though they will be flying by very quickly).

The tour passed through our village last year and it was an amazing atmosphere, the tour itself passes through very quickly but there are a couple of hours build up beforehand with all the advertising vehicles coming through first throwing out vairios freebies - watching will probably be better in a village atmosphere than just on the side of a road somewhere.
