After watching some of the stages of the Tour de France (on TV), and after reading this book, I wanted to take a trip to France and start swimming in some of the 400 swimming spots pictured and described in this book. I could swim in the morning and watch the bike race in the afternoon, enjoying both the beautiful swim locations described in the book, and the racing of some of the great cyclists of the world - all around France.
If you are headed that way, I think the book Wild Swimming France would be a good companion for the trip. The book has detailed instructions and maps to help you find your way to each lake, river, waterfall, or stream. Most of the locations also have photos included in the book.
