TdF begins on Saturday.
What is the TdF? Its the Tour-de-France bike race. The 100th Anniversary of the tour starts on July 5th and ends on July 27th. I am going to watch the race highlights on OLN over the month. Should be awesome. I watched it faithfully last summer before bed every night I could. And toyed with the idea of visiting my uncle in Spain last September to watch the USPS team compete in the follow on tour - the Tour d'Espania., which takes place in late September.
I look forward to seeing if Lance Armstrong, captain of USPS, can complete his Drive for Five - Five TdF wins in a row. That's something that has not been done before. And if you know anything about Lance Armstrong, that is very impressive after battling back from testicular cancer.
Off to Port Stanley's beach. Wish I had a USPS cycling hat.
