Tour de France

2005-07-04 06:09:41.659906+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

It pains me to pay attention to a heavily hyped commercial sports event, but I know enough people who are at least peripherally following the Tour de France that I'm going to try to stay conversant on it this year. Mark Livingood, who runs http://www.TheTandemLink.com, posted number of links to the Tandem@Hobbes[Wiki] mailing list that'll help me in that. From that message:

I've followed the Tour for 30 years now, since the time I was prepping for my cross-country bike trek. I just told Charlie today that once the kids are out of the house, one of the things I want to do is go to France and experience the Tour in person. It's a marvelous athletic achievement for those involved.

I'm more into motorcycling at this point in my life, but for a variety of reasons in the last few years I've found myself drawn increasingly towards biking. I've become a big fan of Lance and of this event itself. I think it could be part of a fantastic vacation to Europe to experience the Tour live.
