As luck will have it, the famous bicycle race, the Tour de France Open link in a new window, is passing some 500 meters from my house in Normandy today. All I need is walk out my door to see the race, but instead I'm getting on my motorcycle to find a "perfect" spot to make some photos.

The complete road for the Tour will have been closed starting at 10 am this morning, but with a motorcycle, and my press pass, I hope to get to the top of a steep hill close by to make photos, not of the bicycles, but of the 100's of motorcycles that surround the race.

If you're watching the race on TV, I'll be located 1 kilometer from the castle of Sassetot-le-Mauconduit Click for map, just after Les-Petites-Dalles (seaside town).

TdF Motorcycle Bicycle accident

I just hope I'm not going to cause what happened on the photo....

I'll be showing the photos either later today (depending on traffic), or tomorrow.
