Happy Fourth of July! With Some Reminders

Happy Fourth of July to everyone from the birthplace of the nation, Philadelphia!

I thought I would use today’s post for a few reminders:

1. Don’t forget to VOTE in this month’s Monthly Wine Writing Challenge! The poll stays open until Monday.wine-stain1-3

2. The Tour de France starts tomorrow! If you want in on my Tour Fantasy League, let me know soon!

3. I mentioned a while back that I would be heading to France this September to lead a bike trip and asked you which I should do: Loire Valley or Burgundy. Well, I am going to do both (along with a week in Belgium). It is not too late to join me! Here is the company:

I am starting to get some winery visits organized!

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  1. Tour Fantasy League…I can’t believe that’s even a thing (which probably shows you just how out of touch I am with the world of biking)

    A biking wine trip sounds fabulous. One of these years, I’ll join you. I may be 85, but that’s OK, right?


  3. Vive le Tour!! You’re killing me with the “both” thing . . . I WISH I could go!! Dang kids, school, soccer, marching band, etc. One of these times. BTW, my husband got me clipless pedals/shoes for the tandem. Haven’t tried them out yet, but for sure it’ll be a Kodak moment. Cheers & Happy 4th!

  4. Happy Independence Day! Thank you for the reminder re: Tour de France. I taught indoor cycling classes for many years. During the Tour each year I would simulate a leg of the tour each week in my hour long class. It was awesome! I loved having the participants leave soaking wet and practically unable to walk. We focused a lot on the hill climbs. Brings back great memories. I have never been much of an outdoor cycling but indoor it is hands down my favorite cardio! Your tour sounds great. Cheers
