The Tour de France

The body language says it all.

We’ve been following The Tour de France in the motorhome since 2013, learning from a few mistakes and generally planning less and less as some of the best Tours have been with no real planning at all.

Brand new motorhome for 2018 had us doing our highest mileage @ 3750 miles. It was a lot of driving and just as well we had cab aircon as the temperatures were 35 Deg C.

Such is the scope of the Tour routes we are starting to return to some spots. Albertville we’ve been to twice same with Bourg d’Oisans and Alpe d’Huez.

Now on our second motorhome, a Rollerteam 685 based on a Ford Transit van with an automatic gearbox. It’s really nice to drive but you have to watch that rear overhang. We’ve seen a hell of a lot of France a bit of Belgium and a touch of Luxembourg. Found out about the French Aire system which is brilliant, wild camped overnight on the Tour de France route with all the other motorhomes and so on.
