By John Mullins What makes the Tour de France so special? Why is it that this one cycling competition transcends all other events on two wheels? Even if cycling isn’t your thing, you’ll know what the Tour de France is all about. Since 1903, the world has been […]
Maxine Dodd’s pictures are beautiful. It’s well worth exploring her website to see some of her pictures from this year’s Tour de France. If you happen to be in Northampton, you can see them at the jgallery as well.
A slew of Tour de France-related emails have arrived this week promoting this product, that cause etc… The race itself, of course, sets off today from the Vendée in western France. Of all the emails that I have received, two stick out from the rest. The first comes […]
Cycling the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway (eastern loop) from Malham to Settle and back, travelling in Japan and an interview with Mike Webb of PulpedTravel.com and cycling to the summit of one of the Tour de France’s most iconic climbs: Mont Ventoux
With suitably melodramatic background music and available on demand in the UK from June 25th… From the filmmakers: “LE RIDE follows the story of the first English speaking team to ride in the toughest sporting event on earth, The Tour de France. In 1928 a small under-resourced, untested team from […]
For those who like their cycling art just as much as their cycling facts and figures, this book could be for you: “Racing Bicycles: The Illustrated Story of Road Cycling“. “Everything you need to know about road cycling – the bikes, the races, the famous riders – in […]

A few weeks ago, as the Tour de France made its way across the French countryside, I had the opportunity of visiting the Dordogne region of France courtesy of the organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire, Welcome to Yorkshire. If this is news to you (or you have […]
As this year’s Tour rolls into Paris for its final étape, a longer post that you normally find in this corner of the Internet reflecting upon my visit to France last week with Welcome To Yorkshire to witness stages 10 and 11 of the Tour de France 2017. […]
Maxine has featured here before and, with the theme of the week being the Tour de France, I see no reason not to share another of her rather beautiful posts. More available on her own site. Hello! Another scene from this lovely stage – this time showing team […]
Well, CyclingEurope.org has rarely been closer to the action. Today we are at the arrival line of stage 10 of the Tour de France in Bergerac. More updates later (although let’s face it, you might find out who won more quickly by watching ITV4…)
A selection of photos to keep you going. I’ll write up when home.
It’s taken nine years of blogging, over 2,500 blog posts, 20,000 kilometres of cycling around Europe and three (rather good) books… but I’ve finally been invited on an all-expenses tour of a foreign land. The land in question is the Dordogne region of France and earlier this afternoon […]
Very often when you look back upon events of the past, they seem to have happened only very recently when in fact they took place many years ago. I have the opposite sensation about the 6th July 2014 as the events of that particularly momentous day appear (in […]
I did think it would be difficult to replicate the atmosphere experienced in Yorkshire when the Tour de France arrived in the county back in 2014 but yesterday on the cobbles of the ‘Côte de Shibden Wall’ it came pretty close… Wonderful afternoon!
I’m loving these posts from Maxine Dodd. Very good indeed.
These evoke memories of cycling in the area of Saumur last year en route to Nordkapp…
I can’t believe it’s a year since I was sitting outside my parents’ house in the ‘Col de Greetland’ in Yorkshire awaiting the riders on stage 2 of the Tour de France. This weekend the 2015 race kicks off in Utrecht of course and SiS and Trek Factory […]
