Its that time of year … Tour de France. Not everyone likes the racing dimension of cycling, I do. This is not what everyone should be up to on a bike, but it is a fascinating tradition.

It starts tomorrow, with the Prologue. The route runs from Passage du Gois to Mont des Alouettes in Vendée and will cover a wopping 191.5 km. This is not the longest section of the Tour, but its one of the longest and will put the riders through an endurance test from the word go.  Will I be watching? Hellz yes!
