What's Cool In Road Cycling

Best of PEZ: Gord Finds Brittany

TDF08, St. 2: So today, I'm thinking of the person risking ridicule by sticking a stuffed badger on a bike for the world to see. I'm thinking of the lady sitting by the road, and I'm thinking of Anna at Pontivy's Hotel Robic, who sorted my booking for last night, even though I wasn't even staying there. I'm thinking of the wannabe pros dicing with death on the route and the guy in full 50s Poulidor retro kit, bike and all, grimacing into this morning's rain.
