TdF trip info neededdyano
Jun 27, 2001 5:46 PM
I'm lucky enough to be able to go see the TdF (Stage14).
Trying to decide between Col de Toumalot and the Mtn Top Finish.
Which is better? How do I get up to the top of the mountain? Bus?
Rental car? How about those paint,where do I get them at?
If anybody's been to see the TdF,can you provide with some info/advice,please?
Thanks in advance.

provided you can parle a little francais you should be able to find a bus to the top which would be highly recomended. I would not recomend trying to drive up there in a rental car the day of the race, most people that drive have been there for a couple o' days... and besides it is psycho trying to get down after the race... a traffic jam at 8,000ft is no fun. If you do drive you can park just about anywhere that your car will fit...

have fun and watch the finish.

Je ne pas parle le francais.
That's the best I can do from collage level French.
Thanks for the info.That's very helpful.I'll see
what I can do about getting to the top.
I'll watch the finish as I was also told that there are lot
more things going on there.
