Le Tour de France - A Vacation On Wheels?

Riding a bicycle around France during July sounds like an idyllic way to spend a few weeks during the summer. Visiting different regions of the country while on a leisurely ride through vineyards and sunflower fields seems like a fun pastime in which all French gentlemen should aspire to partake at least once during their lifetime. Just to add a little adventure and interest to the two-wheeled vacation, there would be a small prize for the first man to return to Paris. …. This was the ill-informed overall impression of the Tour de France that the author had gained during five years of studying French at high school on the other side of the world.

Some twenty years later when he was able to make his long-awaited first trip to France, he began to discover that his pre-conceived notions of the event were removed from reality by a large distance - over 3,000 kilometers to be exact. Having realized the extent of his original misperceptions about the Tour de France, the author was eager to discover whether it was still possible to enjoy the Tour de France in the way he had visualized it as a youngster. Substituting a campervan for a bicycle, he decided to follow the Tour de France for three weeks with the aim of enjoying the race while simultaneously taking in the sights, sounds and tastes of France. This book tells the story of his quest.

Le Tour Arrives in France

July 7, 2014

 

And we will be there!

On Tuesday Le Tour arrives in France and the whole country will be ready to watch. Your faithful correspondents will be ready to watch and report from the road. We will be located at La Chapelle d'Armentieres and will be seen on TV between 9:46 and 10:01 Central time. Exciting times lie ahead because although we are now about to enter Stage 4, the separation between the leaders and a number of other contenders is less than 5 seconds in a race that will take place over a period of 60 hours or more.

Many riders may benefit from visiting this little church on the Normandy coast if they hope to make up seconds and improve their position.

Beautiful reredos!
