Hello there to all our new cow loving, cycle-toting friends!
Three weeks to go … just about. I’m starting to get excited about the individual stages of the tour, starting with our jumping off spot, le Grand Depart, at Passage du Gois on the Atlantic coast in the North West of France. The start sees the pack traversing a bluestone causeway that is cut by high tides. If I was organising Le Tour I might be tempted to pop this bit in at the end of a stage, to see who gets there before they have to swim across. (That there is quite possibly why I’m not organising Le Tour I guess). Here’s a link to the glossy start page on the official web site.
Injera has provided some great practical advice for preparing yourself for this year’s tour, I thought I’d follow up with some quick notes on how technology (well really, twitter) can provide excellent insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the tour.
