Visiting the Tour de France; what do you wish you'd known?

Jump to last reply

I'll be spending a day on a stage of the Tour de France this year, with an organized tour group. I'll have access to the starting village, then see the riders go by at some point, then be there for the finish, as well.

This is definitely a bucket list item, and I want to do it right. I'm wondering if folks who have done this would be willing to share thoughts on what they wish they'd known before going. Was there something you wish you'd had with you? (A jersey to get signed, a better camera, ...) If you were doing it again, how would you make it better, or how would you prepare better?

Many thanks for any information you can provide.
