It has always been a dream of mine to watch the Tour de France. This week that dream came true.
After an interesting start to the day leading into a full on sprint with a heavy back pack and bike bag, no easy feat let me tell you, I just made my first train on my trip from my Belgian Homestay, Leuven, to Grenoble in France. I managed to organise a reservation on a faster train in Lille and this saw me arriving in Grenoble at 2.30pm as opposed to the original planned 9pm.
I set off and managed to find my camp site quite easily. A rather small one at that with my fellow campers just metres away on either side.
I lie here now typing this on my Blackberry.
A big thanks to Gerry for lending me the two second tent, check it out on Youtube if you haven’t seen one before, and a sleeping bag. I opted against taking the blow up mattress due to weight but I must say my bike bag is rather comfy 😉 living the dream… Still got a smile on my face!
Tomorrow Ill ride up Alpe du Huez with a friend from Pietermaritzburg, Brad Stroberg and then later watch the GC men battle it out!
