The Tour of Switzerland is over and Levi was victorious. The wait for the Tour de France commences. This historic race begins July 2nd in the year 2011 and will cover 3,430.5 kilometers. The Tenspeed Heroes will arrive fashionably late on Bastille Day, July 14. Before, during or after each stage the heroes will look for freshly dug BMX encampments, shortcuts up mountainsides, and overland routes to a calanque or two. Race coverage can be quickly accessed by reading Cycling News’ daily reports, skimming Velo News’ live feed, or in the comfort of the Rapha café in San Francisco while drinking an Americano. Our postings will be erratic, passionate, sometimes loosely, and other times tightly cycling related. Our hotels will be grassy fields, damp Pyrenean grass, and dry Rhone soil. If you see us on the side of the road, in a café, or a bookstore say hello.
