Even before the other half was a nutty cyclist we both got into watching the tour - now our apartment is full of bikes & july involves staying up all night watching it, getting really into all the tactics & teams etc and a lot of coffee to get through work the next day!
The tour is also fab for amazing european scenery, le taste of le tour (good old gabriel gate!) and girls lets not forget a few hotties in lycra - i recommend keeping an eye out for Fabian Cancellara who rides for Saxo Bank. Oh & lets not forget Lance!
Heres Lance out for a jog with Matthew Mcconaughey...
not bad eh?!
So last year we started a tradition - on the first night of the tour we stay in & cook french food for dinner & then settle in for the first night of action. Last year we had an amazing soft french cheese, made Casssoluet for dinner & creme brulee for dessert.
So im planning the meal for this sunday night....
Maybe ill try this receipie from Gourmet Traveller for Beef Bourguignon;
Does anyone have any suggestions for a dessert or a great cheese to start with??
