And I am at Le Tour. Sorry for the ad nauseum postings about this, but I just got extra geeked after today's ride! I stopped off at my LBS and was chatting with the lads. They were busy installing a new SCREEN size televiision that they were having OLN equipped during the Tour IN THE SHOP!!! WAY TA GO LADS!!! Since I don't have cable, I'll be popping into the shop before work to catch some live coverage before I depart!

The folks at the shop said they will be getting stafff to the shop early during the Tour so that the clients get to watch the live a.m. feeds!

Now THAT'S a bicycle shop!!

Would love to do that!

My wife and I went to Paris last year. I had two goals: Get photographed under the Arc de Triumphe and find Laurant Fignon's bike shop to buy a club jersey. I accomplished both.

My wife's goals were to shop, eat, tour, shop, shop, shop. She accomplished her goals too.

On to victory! Even my local newspaper had Lance on the front page of the sports page. Whoa!
Where is Fignon's shop?DCW

I leave for the TdF Thursday. Will spend a couple of days in Paris before catching it in the west and following it for the final two weeks. I'd like to find the shop and buy a jersey, too.
