Win a place!
I don’t think we have dedicated paris olympics 24 thread yet. I was going to excitedly say you can register interest for tickets this month. But the website has failed on me. So maybe tomorrow. Or sometime - with added Gallic shrug.
I’m crossing my fingers my employer gets some
But going to register, too.
Planning on visiting start of June this year, to see what it’s like in summer and with people there
Pretty hideous to be honest and far too hot. But that’s all part of the fun. My french friends and I did London 2012 so it would be rude if we didn’t repeat Paris 24.
I’ve only ever been Dec-Feb, so it’s cold and there are little to no tourists.
All of the “stories” I hear about massive queues and throngs of people everywhere, I’m like “erm…not for me!”
Don’t the Parisians all flee the city at the time that the Olympics are on?
Website does appear to be working now. I have signed up.
The plan now is for the end of the Tour in Nice and then some travel through france to get paris for the triathlon events.
Olympics are July and most Parisians only abandon the place for august. They may change a habit of a lifetime for 2024.
