Le Tour

Thus far, outstanding weather showing Belgium and France at their richest. So beautiful seeing the Moselle from the air today.
Great.
And a very gutsy ride by Alaphillipe yesterday, putting a Frenchman in the yellow jersey and maybe a potential winner.
Too thick for a PhD!

Re: Le Tour

Agree with everything except the last 4 words, Wools. Hoping for another Brit win. Or Colombian....

Re: Le Tour

Le Tour is passing within 5kms of where we live on its Nimes - Nimes stage in 2 weeks time.

As it happened, we were today on the road which will be used for about 30kms of the route and (as you’d expect) the contractors were out in several places fixing the odd bit of dodgy road surface.

We were amused though over one major exercise. There’s a roadside ‘snack bar’ place that’s been abandoned and derelict for about 10 years. Periodically its been ‘torched’ by some of the locals looking for a bit of Saturday night entertainment. Never really understood why they did it and why they didn’t do a better job, because there was always enough of it left to sustain the eyesore.

Anyway ......... you guessed it. Full-on demolition in progress this afternoon, with a monster JCB and a couple of tippers taking the debris. Somebody will be round with liberal sprinklings of lavender blossom tomorrow !

Vive Le Tour.

...and then, on the day of the Tour, the gendarmes will be out tear-gassing the wildlife - or the peloton: they're not bothered. 😂😂

Yawn - where are the drugs?



My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.
