I am not a fan of cyclists.
Back in my home town there is a time of year when cyclists close off the town and everyone is accosted by lycra nuts riding through to Brighton. You can’t drive anywhere, the volunteer marshals think their authority is higher than the police and the cyclists are generally rude.
All this aside I regularly watch the Tour de France. Perhaps it’s the luscious scenery, the controversy or the on screen pile ups, whatever the reason, it is a yearly event for me.

The 100th edition of the event has already got underway in Porto-Vecchio and will finish on Sunday the 21st July in Paris on the Champs Elysees. It will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,479 kilometres.

Being the third mist watched event in the whole world has to qualify for something, and with so many students choosing to pursue sports careers post Olympics, it’s important to remember the spectacle of the Tour de France as something to aspire to be in.
So when you’re out on a boris bike, see how fast you can really go and get your training started.
