    TdF 2019 - Parking

    Hi

    We're going to the Alps at stage 16-20, but where is it possible to park our motorhome?

    Specially at Col du Galibier, Val Thorens, Col de l'Iseran, La Sentinelle is just park along the road?

    Eh bien!

    Give the property owner a bottle of the nice local wine, swear to leave the spot as clean as when you arrived, and ask him if you can park the rig next to his fields. . When you get there, others camping out will help you, for sure.

    Bon voyage! We'll be watching from the helicopters.

    Choose the passes you wish to watch the race on carefully, as the good campsites fill up early. You want to arrive at least a day in advance, preferably two or three days for good sites. On the more popular passes arriving the morning of the race will find you with no place to park your motorhome - at least on the upper stretches.

    Also, be prepared for monumental traffic jams once the race has passed by, as everyone will be trying to rush off to the next day's location.

    Are you bringing your bikes? I found it better to park/camp down in the valleys below and ride my bike up to a prime viewing spot. That also got me down off the mountain quicker than the one time I camped way up on the pass.
    Life is short... enjoy the ride.
