Talking with John and Justin (work colleagues) back before Christmas we decided that a trip to see a day or two of the 2008 Tour De France would be good. Initially we went through a few possibilities:
Car with our own bikes so we could do a bit ourselves (not the climbs)
Flying in and hiring a car.
Taking motorbikes and doing some camping.
The last option seems to be the one we’re going with though there’s a slight issue in that neither Justin nor John have A) a motorbike license and B) a motorbike. They’re seeking to remedy that though and both are taking lessons. Well John has already taken his CBT but Justin (Pudding foot) Ramel missed his CBT because he went over on his ankle two days before.
Have to say I’m looking forward to it! Just need to see how it pans out.
