Went last year and it's a good excuse for a weekend away so we're going again.

Last year we stood on a wall on the Rue de Rivoli where you could see the riders coming up the road towards Concorde which was fun, but I wondered if anyone had any other suggestions on places to watch.

French security is so bad we also managed to join in the (premature) Phonak celebrations at the end!

  • I was right at the top of the Champs - E last year but obviously you need to be there early to get a good spot. Ours was on a much coveted bench, great for sitting on and then standing on once they get there.

    I can't wait to look in the mirror, I get better looking each day.
    To know me is to love me, I must be a hell of a man.

    Will it be treats with Pocket and Sweets? Is that where we should go?

    I was on the top of the Champs Elysees last year, awesome spot but you need to get there very very early.

    Couple of pics from last years final day.
