Yep, so I’m riding the whole Tour de France route again this summer having clearly not learned my lesson from my experiences of the 2017 Tour, the events of which are also catalogued on my blog. Good news is that there are quite a lot of us from that year taking part again, so we are guaranteed some great camaraderie already!
There’s not a lot to say just yet, so I won’t say it! If you are a new visitor to this site, then I’ll just explain that if you scroll right to the bottom then you will see reports from 2016 when I rode the first half of that year’s Tour. The most recent posts are from 2018 when I spent a week in the Picos in May (including the Angliru, arguably the toughest climb in Spain) and then four days based in Briancon in the French Alps in June (including an excursion to the Italian side to ride up Colle delle Finestre, where Chris Froome effectively won the Giro d’Italia that year).
I’m currently enjoying being out on the road again having spent a lot of the winter on the turbo in the garage. That doesn’t make for exciting blogging, so I’ll wait until May when I’ll be heading off to the Vosges for a few days to recce the Planche des Belles Filles, which will be the first of our five summit finishes.
That’s it for now.
