My tour, of course, is a big project. So, I needed to get inspired by other big projects.
Since the Tour de France usually doesn’t start with a regular full day, I didn’t want to do that either.
So, the prologue went from my home to my parents’ house about 8km east.It was raining a lot that day and so I get to try the impermeability off my clothing and gear. All worked well and I arrived there safely.
The highlights of the stage were:
- I only had to turn for the first time after 7.5 km
- I enjoyed being faster than the cars in the traffic jam piling up at one construction site.
- It felt funny walking a path that I know very well with full gear and the big backpack.
