Once again this year, the Tour de France is passing through our area.
On Thursday 7th July 2011, the cyclists will be departing from Dinan in Brittany on their way to Lisieux, 226 km further.
The 'Caravane' will start at 10am and the cyclists won't come til 11.45am. It is a long time to wait but don't worry the 'Caravane' will entertain you! The best place to stand is near the Post office in Dinan to see the cyclists closely or from the Jardin Anglais you will have a great view when they go over the viaduct.
Parking your car in Dinan that day will be a nightmare! It is best to go early or watch the Tour from another village ie St Helen!
If you have never seen the Tour de France, make sure you don't miss it this year. You have to see it once for real!
