Les Paccots, not, Lausanne
 
DRIVERS: Half of Lausanne's roads will be closed off for the Triathlon on Saturday, so drive direct to Vevey and recommend you pick up passengers from there.

We meet at Vevey train station (in front) at 12h00 noon for a 12h00 noon departure. If you're not there at 12h00 noon, I'll assume you've gone direct to Les Paccots and leave without you.

OR go direct to Les Rosalys Hotel/Restaurant and meet out the front of the restaurant.
