Today I took a bit of a road trip with some friends down to der Schweiz to catch a glimpse of the Tour de France. Our travels took us into the hills of the Delémont region. We did get a bit lost on the way there, however that just provided us the chance to see some of the lovely scenic countryside.
This was my first "official" bike race (aside from a couple Dana Alia races I attended with my good friend Johanna) and it was tons of fun! Of course, since I went along with 2 cycling enthusiasts, that made it even more exciting. The hills of Montavon were a-buzz, and then almost eerily quite in the moments leading up to the emergence of the riders around the bend, which then led to various eruptions of encouragement by flag-wielding fans. It was quite the experience.
All-in-all a great day. You can check out further stages and obtain further Tour-related info at their official site.
