Tour Fever: French Countryside

One of my favorite parts about watching the Tour de France is seeing all the picturesque European farms and villages they ride through. Here's the complete map of the race.

The little barns, the sunflower fields, the churches, the cows. Some of these teeny towns are so perfect, they're almost unbelievable.

It would be fun to bike the route myself someday. Of course, probably not the mountain stages and definitely not doing 150 miles per day.

I too am a tour junkie. Living on the west coast it is so nice to wake up in the morning and turn on the tour! Since you are so into fashion, I'm sure you have a post coming up on the fashions the ladies who hand out the trophies/jerseys wear. As always in France, they are tres chic!

That's how far they go? That is amazing. I would go there to ride my bike, if I could stop for a break in every little cafe. :)
