... It is a 21-day race around the country of France. Stages are usually 80-150 miles and cover various terrain. Typically they cover 2000-2500 miles total. The winner of the Tour is the guy who consistently finishes each day/stage towards the front. Each day there is a stage winner, which is a huge accomplishment for a rider since the Tour is basically the top 190 cyclist in the world. Not every rider goes for the overall win some just try for a stage win. This means some days ...
Today we awoke early again to get ready for our ride. This was going to be the first day for us to watch the Tour de France live. As usual we were a bit stiff and sore but there is no time to ease into the morning. We had to eat our breakfast quickly and get dressed and ready to go.

construction. The only way home, take a detour that involved a 2.5 mile climb
at 8-10%. So much for finishing early. By now it was so hot the road tar was
beginning to melt a bit. The melting roads made the ascent seem that much
harder and ...
... and then straight into the first climb Col du Chaussy. Within the first km I had a bloody flat....I reckon I scored the first puncture on this year's Etape.
Up and over the first climb and I knew I was going to have a tough day. There were still 3 big climbs left and already the sun was blazing and the temp rising. After 60kms we then hit the foot of Col du Glandon, the biggest and toughest climb of the day +20kms at ...
