Tour de France


We don't have cable or watch much television in our home and don't miss it, hello and thanks Hulu and Netflix. Although, one event we do miss watching live is the Tour De France which starts this Saturday, June 30th! Who else is a fan of watching this crazy endurance bike fest?

I came across these rad posters designed by Neil Stevens last year for the 2011 race and really love them. Also check out the new batch he is cooking up.

It is great to see people get the biking itch around this time of year, eh? We see bikers on the roads pretty much everyday where we live, on the walking trail over the weekend we saw pretty much every bike you could think of, and the other day at the gym it was comically cool to see all the spin bikes placed outside by the pool. I believe we live in serious biker territory! Are you a biker - indoors or out?

My friend sent me this blog post, because she knows how much I love the Tour. Last year I downloaded the All Access pass for my iPod/iPad and it allows you to watch every days coverage. Just thought I would share, because I also don't have cable.

Vive la tour!

I love biking, but I'm not a cyclists. I saw a group of them riding the other day, & chuckled to myself to see how intense they all were. Definitely a sub-culture of their own.

Great posters and post! I've always loved biking..but it's not always been easy to find the time...or at times, I didn't have a bike to ride. Happy to say just recently purchased an awesome bike for some family riding....My girls and I just started riding them to school - it's so awesome! Something we should have done long time ago!
