The Tour de France is only a few days away. It sort of crept up on me this year. One of those, “oh man the Tour starts next week.” I try to catch the live coverage every day. That means scheduling life around the Tour. If I am travelling or staying in a hotel I need to know if they get OLN ahead of time.
The TDF Blog, the Paceline and CyclingNews will become daily reading (often repeated stops). CyclingNews’ live coverage page becomes the homepage on my Blackberry browser.
Frank Steele sends word that Sirius will be doing a daily podcast from le Tour. Frank also linked to this graphic this morning.
It was an insert in the The Oregonian newspaper in Portland, OR. The graphic was designed by Mark Friesen. You can get the full details here.
I don’t plan on ‘blogging’ the Tour unless there is something I really need to say. Once things get going I will put up some links to the other sites/blogs I have been reading.
