'T' is for Tour de France.
Am I cheating by missing off the ‘Le’? Actually I don’t think so and probably don't really care as these are the photos that I have decided to post anyway.
Last year Le Tour De France actually took in some of good old Angleterre and Mrs DeeJay and I set out in glorious sunshine to sit outside of a pub some 10 miles away (and yes we DID cycle there – and I think back again but that is a little hazy) to wait for the super fit cyclists to arrive. They were not on schedule as advertised so many a pleasant hour was spent drinking, eating pub lunch and more drinking before the arrival of the ‘entourage’ selling baseball caps, posters and all sorts of merchandise announced that they were getting close.
And then ….. in the distance – Here they come
Here they are
After about a minute and a half there they were – GONE! With just an army of supporters and spare bikes etc. the only traffic left on the road.
I wonder when they will be back on English soil again, and I wonder if I will bother to go and see them again. I suppose it depends on the weather and the beer!If you want to take part in ABC Wednesday or simply see more alphabet themed photos, then visit Mrs Nesbitt's place
