The Tour de France will be starting in Yorkshire. I have no interest in it and I'm so sick of hearing about 'Le Grand Depart' (always mispronounced. Call it 'the start' for heaven's sake :roll: ) on local radio that I've re-tuned my radio alarm to Radio 4.

Today we had to go along part of the route. Mr SW was banging on about it and asked should we go to watch. I could think of few things I'd like to do less. Then he played his trump card.

“Think of all the lycra” he said.

:o And I still am :shock: :D:D

What would you do? (Mig, no need to reply. I just kind of know :lol: And there'll be plenty for both of us :wink: )

    They go awful fast once they get going, so blink and you'd miss your Lycra fix.Better perhaps to have something recorded to watch in comfort, possibly in slowmo....

    :lol: Mig, you are utterly incorrigible...and single-minded. (I carefully didn't type 'singlet-minded' there. Not quite the same :wink: )

    On July 7th it passes through very close to where I live, no more than a mile. Will have to put the date in my diary! One advantage of being on sick leave.

    Where I live the surrounding roads will all be closed off from 6 a.m. on the 6th July, as the caravan, cavalcade and the cyclists will be due .

    So we have booked a weekend away, not interested I'm afraid.
    The area will be heaving. I am hardly going to battle my way through that lot. .

    Its supposed to be bringing in goodness knows how much revenue to the area but wonder how much it is costing the local council to re-surface most of the route and including the pavements along the route. Other roads are left with the huge pot holes whilst loadsa dosh being spent on this function. :roll:
