When I showed up for TDP last year it was my first one. There was no instruction, no worksheet, no nothing. So I set up at my assigned spot and listened and tried to mimic what everyone else was doing. This year I propose a worksheet. It will explain what people are to do and not do and be as comprehensive as it can be. Please add to the list, comment, etc., and approaching TDP I will convert it all into a PDF that can be referenced in the field or printed out and taken to the event.
Tour de Paris Worksheet
Participants are chiefly there to observe and assist. Observations that can be passed along include the first and last rider to pass through the location, if EMS is needed due to injury and any resupply that the various locations need.
Your call sign:
The first rider (try and include the number on their jersey):
As day is wrapping up report the very last rider we are tracking has passed your location.
Handy to have: Water, sunshades, spare batteries if operating a portable along with binoculars or a monocular.June 8, 2022 at 12:57 pm #2402Kelly CollinsParticipant

Ah…so there was some kind of info. LOL Well, I didn’t know it. But this year we can have a worksheet right here on the site and people can use it at their assigned location. From a smart phone or printed out, whatever. LOL Sorry if I stepped on your toes. I just winged it last year and thought everyone else was too. Thanks for the follow up!

More for your “personal kit” – food and maybe an icebox for keeping stuff cold. Including your insulin if you are a diabetic. What else?

I used to send out an email when I got the T-shirts for TDP and most would pick them up at my house after work. Others would pick up the T-shirts at our station at the event site around 7am.July 7, 2022 at 7:07 pm #37130
The maps on https://www.tourdeparis.org/ under Routes are the up to date maps for 2022 TDP. I should have the composite map of all routes posted in a couple of days.July 13, 2022 at 8:37 am #37133
Attached is the rural map with Mileage.July 13, 2022 at 12:55 pm #37136
Jerry’s hybrid map has distances on it, a very handy feature. This link to the TDP site is to the page where they have individual maps of each route in case anyone is interested. Mark Johnson (W5PTX) tells me that he is six operators short. Two weeks ago we were three operators short and now we are six operators short. If you have not signed up please contact Mark right away and sign up to help.
