In honor of the first day of summer, what I most look forward to this season-the Tour de France! Allow me to explain-I am not a cyclist, nor do I own a bike. I am not a big sports fan and do not watch any other sport as closely as this one. But the first time I watched it, about 10 years ago, I was hooked. I watch the entire Tour…including flat stages and rest days with continuing coverage. It would be easy to conclude my obsession is due to my francophilia, but no-it is an exhilarating sport! Glimpses of far reaching towns, gorgeous countryside, challenge, and cycling tradition…bring it on.
