Tour de France - live action

On our way through Burgundy today we got diverted because of a roadblock at St Fargeau which turned out to be because the Tour de France was coming through. We were able to watch the whole "circus" coming through over about 2 hours and took some great pictures and video clips from about 10m from the  racing cycles. I'd no idea that, before the riders came through, there are loads of vehicles throwing goodies to the waiting crowds. I managed to catch a Frisbee that my grandson will have when he next comes to stay. Great fun and an opportunity to be part of the real French experience, purely by chance.
