What are the dates for "Le Tour"? Know it's in July, but I forget the dates. Yes, I am ashamed that I don't have this etched in my ever more feble brain, but, hey, life gets real busy this time of year with kids at home, ballet rehearsals to drive to, shows to attend, yada, yada,
yada.
Thanks!

Also check www.lancearmstrong.com for information as well. My favorite, though, is still www.cyclingnews.com.

I've ridden Hummah's cruiser and it is a tank. Smooth as silk but heavy as sin. It's got style and character, but it would bring pain to the strongest of men.

Don't get me wrong, I love cruisers and I love my Single Speeds!

Go Hummah!
Ahhh....that's different!Greg Taylor

You are actually granted a plenary indulgence for venial sins (such as forgetting when the Tour starts) if you ride a fixie on a regular basis. Really. I got that little ecclesiastic pointer from Sister Mary Cogset, the cycling nun, during a group ride/CYO Picnic on the Feast of St. Campy. She used to rap our fingers with a spoke ruler if we showed up with a dirty bike. And she sure as heck didn't wait up for your sorry behind if you got dropped...

And if you want to watch it Live. It's on OLN. Satellite has it but don't know about cable.

OLN is the ONLY channel to carry it. Hopefully, I'll have my mini-dish before then!
