Saturday July 18
Depart Newark airport for Geneva, Switzerland (CH)
Morning - Land in Geneva CH
Transfer to Grenoble, France by TGV (French Rail Service)
Afternoon - Meet with Cycling Classics guides, transfer to hotel on Les Duex Alpe, assemble bike, go for a spin ride
Ride from Les Duex Alpe to Duingt France at southern end of Lake Annecy to hotel - 112 Miles total riding. Includes the Col du Galibier, Col Du Lautaret, and the Col du Telegraphe
Ride to Annecy to watch the riders warm up and depart for the TdF TT (Time Trial). This is going to be a very important stage depending which riders are where on GC (General Classification or standings).
Afternoon - Ride up Mount Ventoux
THE BIG DAY. The tour arrives at Mount Ventoux and the mountain will most likely crown the final victor for the final ride into Paris tomorrow afternoon. I will be perched on the side of the mountain with millions of other fans (seriously, it's going to be that many) and I have something special up my sleeve to get on international TV (more on that in a later post).
Morning - Transfer to Paris via TGV
Afternoon - Watch the big finish of the TdF and see the final victor crowned on the Champs-Elysées.
Late Afternoon - Bike tour of Paris
Evening - Night bike tour of Paris. This promises to be an awesome experience and includes an one hour boat ride on the Siene River, and see the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre, Hotel de Ville, the Musée D'Orsay, and other Paris landmarks fully lit at night.
Depart Paris for Newark/Home
