Here’s the plan:
June 30- July 5 2006

Day 1-
We’ll meet the group at the train station at about 3pm.  You can get
to Strasbourg either from Paris or Frankfurt.  We’ll get everyone
checked into the hotel and take a stroll in the beautiful cathedral
quarter.  You’ll get a feel for this superb city and it’s rich history
and culture.  On to a fabulous Alsatian dinner with welcome
aperitif.  Once you sample Alsatian cuisine, you’ll want to keep the
Hotel- Hotel Europe

Day 2-
Today the pro cycling action starts with a time trial which makes
for excellent viewing, as one can clearly see all the riders, who go
by at one minute intervals. The race is only 7.5 km and the riders
will be going all out to determine who will be the first of this year's
leaders.  After the stage we’ll transfer to our next hotel, the lovely
four star Hotel a la Cour D’Alsace in the charming village of
Obernai.  Group dinner tonight.

Day 3-
We’ll be riding part of the race route today.  Although the exact
route has not yet been announced, we expect to be able to ride
directly from our hotel.  We’ll find good spots for viewing and
watch the riders and the rest of the festivities.  It's then back to
our hotel in Obernai where there will be a bit of time to walk
around visit one of the prettiest villages in the Alsace.  You are on
your own for dinner tonight, so choose one of the great local
restaurants in Obernai.

Day 4- Today we will catch the race once again as the riders
depart the Alsace region.  The exact route hasn't been
announced, but we expect to be able to ride to a viewing spot
from our hotel, or worst case would involve a short shuttle.  
Before getting back to the hotel we'll find a cafe and watch the
day's exciting finish on TV while enjoying an adult beverage.

Day 5- Today we'll cycle to the beautifully restored Chateau
de Haut Koenigsbourg.  The restoration was done by the
Germansprior to WWI, and we'll take a tour of the castle and
learn it's fascinating history.  There are many hilltop
chateaux in the region which date from the middle ages,
but most are in ruins.  This one is a treat.  We'll stop by a
family winery on the way back to the hotel and taste some of
the renown wines of Alsace.

Day 6- We’ll drop the group off at the train station or airport
in Strasbourg after breakfast.  Au revoir and bon voyage
for your trip home.

"Thanks for some great memories Walt"
