Default Anyone riding the Randonnee du Centenaire in Paris?

I sent the ride organizers two separate entry forms, but as yet have
not received any sort of confirmation. Do I just show up the day of
the ride and present my passport? I'm a bit flustered, as I reserved a
pair of bicycles for my wife and myself and was really counting on
making this a fitting finale to our TDF holiday.

Does anyone know anything about what's going on with this event?

Oui ! Yes, I'm riding in it - I sent my application off a while ago and got
confirmation in the mail today - you have to register for the ride (with the
form that came in the mail) on the Saturday 26 July.

If you want check whether you have a place you can call the TDF organisers
(they speak English) on + 33 141 331 500 (assuming that you are in N
America then the mail will probably take a little longer than to here in the
UK. They were helpful when I called them - they will tell you if you have
a place and, presumably, if you are already in France then they may arrange
for you to collect your entry at the registration point.

Thank you for your input, Rob. I will try to reach them via telephone,
and who knows, perhaps we will see you on the streets of Paris in a
few weeks. Greetings from America, today is Independence Day.

Cheers,
Ethan Derner

Look forward to that - you'll spot me easily .... I'm tall and will be
riding a silver bike ;-)

Why don't you guys trade entry numbers then you'll know what/who to
look for

If only it were that simple - there are no race numbers issued (remember,
it's the French we are dealing with here!)
