    I can't see Froome loosing it but you never know, Yates and Quintana are both within a minute of him. If Quintana goes at it in the next few mountain stages it could get really close.

    Going to resume back to cycling to work this week. Not really looking forward to the sweltering heat.

    I only have a 2.5mile commute, absolutely savage in this heat. The half mile 12% hill to home is just a sweat fest

    According to the weather it's the hottest around 3 or 4. I'm thinking a nice night ride might be on the books.

    Anyone ever heard of these guys before? It's apparently meant to be casual cycling clothing https://www.foxwilson.com/clothing sounds a lot better than constantly packing a spare change of clothes. Thoughts?

    There are all good cyclists but the TdF is like watching real madrid play in the championship league. If other teams next year don't tighten their
    breath, Sky will just continue to dominate.

    My cornering sucked today in a group... Steep, pot hole filled, wet roads and I crashed! Crashed my S works venge Thankfully, it's okay (and so am I), but today was just one of my worse rides ever

    I think Geraint Thomas would be better off leaving so he can lead a team.

    would my LBS be likely to lend me a pump to pump up my tires? I'm in the process of moving and the pump has gone already, kept my bike to destress but have got a puncture haven't got a hope in hell of getting it to 90-100psi with my hand pump which is all I've got left now... we do have a LBS round the corner but I don't really want to pay to have it pumped for the sake of 4 days!
