I was just curious.........any guesses on what you think an average TdF rider's cadence is during the three week race?

Do you mean a weighted average of (cadence while spinning along during easy stretches) + (cadence during last 10 km of sprint stages) + (cadence during small group and solo breakaways) + (cadence during team time trial) + (cadence during individual time trial) + (cadence during major climbs) + (cadence during flat stages) + (cadence during hilly stages) + (cadence while working to bring your sprinter up to the long breakaway) + (cadence while trying to stay ahead of the broom wagon). My guess is that the average is around 90. I'd be more precise, but that would reveal way too much information.

(cadence during long descents)

All I can guess from crude observation is that their tends to be higher than ours.
