lunch in eiffel tower

We are having lunch at altitude 95 on July 29 at noon. Is that too early to see the tour de france riders in Paris? What time would they be visible in Paris? Thank.

The Tour de France web site seems to say that the action should be happening in Paris in the 2pm-6pm time frame. Can anyone confirm?

The website does list the schedule, so I'd go by that for more details. I've seen it several times and it always ends late afternoon. They won't even be near Paris at noon, they aren't likely to be in Paris until around 3 pm. I don't think you'd see anything from Altitude 95 anyway.

I don't think you'll see anything from there either. It's not high enough and much is blocked by buildings and trees.

I don't know its height, but you can't view a bicycle race well from a high building. Sure, you can see some little things likes ants going along the street, I suppose, but it's not a good view of a bicycle race, unless you just want to say you saw the bikers from way far off. I don't think it's going by the tower, anyway -- I think it crosses the Seine south of there at pont de Grenelle and then will be along the opposite quai (ave Pres Kennedy or something) to the Champs-Elysees.
