The start will take place in nearby Blagnac which is where we will be heading to.

 

Starts offer great opportunities for pictures and are the best place to try to catch some of the riders (autographs as well?). 


In Blagnac we will also get to experience the madness of the Publicity Caravane.

 

Once the peloton is off; it will be time to start making our way North towards Paris!

   
July 21st

This will be the last opportunity for the contenders to the Yellow jersey to make their mark on the 2012 Tour and we will be in the heart of the action.

 

We will be making the trip to near Chartres where we will have setup a private and catered viewing location for Custom getaways Clients only.

 

This location will be catered to and TV's will broadcast the event live while we watch from the side of the road.

See pictures of our private viewing location setup.

Once the time trial is over, we will head back to our hotel in Paris.

   

July 22nd
Hotel Location: Paris


 

This is what every professional cyclist aspires to; the arrival of the Tour de France on the Champs-Elysees!

Who will be wearing yellow tonight?

We will find out today as we watch the arrival from the side of the "World's most beautiful Avenue" or from seats in the Official Grand Stands if you wish to choose that option.


 



 

Once the Tour festivities are over, we will get ready for a great dining experience. This year again we will be renting an entire boat for our dinner-cruise along the Seine river. Great food and unbelievable sight-seeing of Paris by night will end our “sensory overloaded day”!!!

Our hotel is located within walking distance of the Champs Elysees, the Grand stands and the dinner cruise.
