We know that cycling can be dangerous. Professional bikers know their sport can be pretty tough once you land on gravel roads at high speeds. Paris-Roubaix was run this past sunday, and Danish news told us that a biker died after a heart attack. Always a tragedy when that happens, and my thoughts are with his family.
We all want to live long lives, and therefore dying at the beginning of the 20s is exactly the opposite of what we come to think of when discussing the cycling classics such as Tour de France, Giro d’Italia etc.
You should remember to check one of the Tour de France route overviews if you are planning to be in France between July 7th and July 29th. Traffic can be redirected in areas where this major cycling sport event is scheduled to go through, and you might as well be prepared.
On the other hand, you might enjoy a really good time if you are close to one of the routes anyway, so it all depends on what you like best.
As always, if you are planning your next vacation to France at this time, you are welcome to ask questions in the comments. I would gladly share information on what you might enjoy if you come to an area I am familiar with – and you could also be so lucky that one of the other readers of this blog could help.
Have a nice day. 🙂
