Grab your cowbells, national flags and Borat thongs! The Tour de France starts on July 5 and ends on July 27. For the next month, I will ignore all responsibility to watch le Tour and tell you the most important details of each stage– from a mademoiselle’s perspective, of course!
The first of the 21 stages is a 118-mile race that takes off on Saturday from Leeds, England. Le Tour doesn’t enter France until Tuesday, July 8. So, you’ll get to see some British and Belgian countryside before we can goggle at the French wine country and sunflowers.
