So, work has been destroying me mentally and physically the last two weeks. That’s mostly due to it being July and it’s crazy busy in general. Mostly it’s because we are hosting a massive “Kitten Festival” this weekend and all the stressors that go with that (i.e. spaying/neutering hundreds of cats).
Since I’ve had a massive glass of wine and need some good stress relief (not including a bicycle this evening), I figure this is a great time to get to know a few of you a lot better! Let’s be better tumblr friends! And friends make stress go away!
So message me if you’re bored and let’s get to know each other a little better!
Or just post a picture of you and your dog/bicycle and I’ll just continue to like it.
The diverse walks of life on Tour never cease to amaze. Near the top of the 34km Col du Lautaret, first climb of the day, a van has stopped and two men are plying paintbrushes energetically on the road. Nothing unusual there, fans paint stuff constantly on the Tour’s tarmac. But this is an official Tour support van, and the van men are not painting a name or a slogan, but glossing over a giant pink phallus, so it will not show from the television helicopter.
Tour de France stage 15- Tallard to Nimes 222km
Out of the Alps.
Breakaway of Jack Bauer, Garmin Sharp, and Martin Elmiger, IAM Cycling, escaped the peloton at the start of the stage. Bauer held off the peloton to the last 50 meters when caught by the sprinters.
Alexander Kristoff, Katusha, claimed his second stage win after the peloton caught Bauer and Elmiger.
It was a cruel outcome for Bauer.
