Monday Morning Series: Tour de France fever

Tour de France fever is here – every day there seems to be new excitement as the riders make their way to Paris.  For the avid cyclist, cycling in France is like a dream….

ligne de depart, cycling

In 2010, we rode our own tour de France, sampling all the region had to offer.  The last day of cycling started in Sisteron, the start city of stage 11 of the 2010 Tour de France.  Famous for the citadel, lamb and fruit orchards, Sisteron is nestled in a narrow gap between two long mountain ridges.  It is known at the Gateway to Provence and provides stunning vistas and amazing roads to pedal to your heart’s content.

Happy Monday Morning

  3. I’m Aussie and my husband’s British. There’s a lot of Tour de France tension in our house right now!

    • Oh dear – there may need to be a Tour neutral zone! You surely have 2 more weeks of tension as the Aussie’s and the Brits battle it out! I have to say – has been quite the race so far. Very excited to see what happens in the mountains.
