Tour De France 2012
I am a self-employed woman living in Boulder, CO. I have limited income, but love to travel. My brother is kind enough to offer me a RT ticket to France to see my niece (his daughter) and to fulfill my dream I've had since 1984- to see part or all of the Tour De France. I'm an avid cyclist, former competitive cyclist, I teach cycling skills to those who want to learn and live bicycling. I get to see some of the Tour this July 2012! I'm seeking all sorts of tips, connecting with people, maybe finding a "host" home in various places, how to "navigate" the Tour (I can see a couple stages mid-way: Stages 11 & 12 on July 13 & 14th), then, in Paris for the finish on July 22nd).
I'll take any offers, suggestions, generosity, ideas, connection w/ other travelers, etc.
I offer bike tours and hiking tours here in the Boulder, Colorado USA area and am happy to exchange my generosity for yours: staying with me, showing you around this lovely area, where to dine, what to see, where to stay, the best of Boulder.
I am a very fit and able traveler who can hike strenuously, carry my suitcase on my back(pack), stay in Hostels. I am also a gracious guest in a host's home. I have a great sense of humor, am very outgoing and welcoming. I enjoy meeting anyone (who is nice), sharing ideas & stories, giving what I can, making folks laugh, and sharing my passion for most things in life- including sharing my passionate enthusiasm for exploring new things.
