... a little lost coming into town, and rode an extra 3 or 4 kms. Surely we'll get it right sooner or later. At least it's not as bad as being lost in a car, and trying to manoeuvre in traffic.

We left the campsite at a fairly respectable time, around 10am and drove in to Tours, to the Parc des Expositions where the finish line would be crossed some 7 hours later. The 'caravane' or procession of sponsors vehicles was due at around 3pm and we wanted to go to that first as it is a bit of fun: lots of excited spectators having free stuff thrown at them by people in ...
