Here are some of the photographs we took as the Tour shot past us. Unfortunately they are the best we got. Don’t they whistle past fast? And it was such a grey day - it’s a good job we had a drop of wine to keep us cheery whilst we waited.
Like a lot of the rest of the town, we decorated - we put Carol’s 1930’s framed bike up on the gate. We also learned a thing. The Caravane is a cavalcade of sponsor’s cars, each dishing out to the crowds, as they pass, their promotional freebies - water, coffee, clapsticks, hats, bags, flags, etc.
Despite the inclement weather, it was a wonderful day, and one we can’t wait to experience again. We will probably have to travel out next year. We noticed that a lot of the visitors to Mûr were from the South of Brittany - we were the closest that the TDF came to Morbihan.
