120 miles a day average, four feed stops, lots of silly chatter, café stops, pee stops, mechanicals, photo opportunities, the joy of the open road, beautiful tarmac (only a cyclist can appreciate this!). All these things contribute the unbelievable experience of leading the pro’s out on the Tour de France route.
