Dear readers, cyclists, caravan... the whole circus... See you somewhere along the route!

Having just watched the live presentation of the Tour de France 2020 with all its stages, we at inthevendee.com are excited! How wonderful it is to live in a place where every year we have the opportunity to travel to the spectacle that is Le Tour, or, if you just give it a year or so chances are it will come virtually on the doorstep wherever you may live. Now WE, are lucky enough to live in the Vendée, one of France's most popular cycling destinations and home of the Harmonie Mutuelle-Vendée cycling team. Fist-pump!

Now, they did announce to talk about the tour, take pictures of the presentation to share on social media etc and so, Monsieur Preudhomme, best tour director ever, don't mind if we share the good news that next year our Vendéen residents and tourists will not have to travel far to steep themselves in your circus, with our growing reader-base.
