Tour de France 2011

Today, I went to Champs Elysees to see the finishing of the Tour de France. One of the many perks to living right in the city of Paris is being able to walk to many events around the city. My boyfriend and I tracked the progress of the riders on the internet so that we would know when they arrived in Paris. We learned to do this after spending a couple of hours last year waiting for them to arrive. We found a spot along the cycling fans and waited until the group of bikes rode by us. It is really amazing how fast they go! If you don't have a quick response with your camera, then you are out of luck! Congratulations to Cadel Evans who one first place!
