It’s that time of year again! Time for the Tour de France! I’ve got the DVR programmed to record all the stages. As always, there is a boatload of information about the Tour, but several useful things have caught my attention this week, so I thought I’d share them here.
— BikeNoob had a great post this week summarizing the Tour teams, what the team names mean and who their top riders are. Be sure to check out Part 1 and Part 2 of his post.
— I’m reading a great book about the history of the Tour: “Blazing Saddles: The Cruel and Unusual History of the Tour de France” by Matt Rendell. You can find out more about the book in my previous post here.
— Sports Illustrated had a good photo slideshow of the Top 10 riders in this year’s Tour.
— MapMyRide’s Le Tour Challenge – ride your bike, map your route and register to win prizes. We’re registered and ready to roll. I’m planning to buy my clipless pedals this weekend, so I may be riding on the stationary trainer for a few days while I get used to the pedals. At least that way I can’t crash while I figure out how to unclip. 😉
— Vive Le Tour socks from the Sock Guy – everyone should have a pair of these cool socks. We’ve bought several pairs of socks from Sock Guy. They’re comfy, they last forever and there are lots of funky designs to choose from.
I was lazy and didn’t keep track of my food journal today. I’ll get back on track tomorrow.
Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!
