Today is the day! The 103rd Tour de France starts today! There is a shortish time trial today (my favorite type of race, although my Texas State Time Trial did not go all that well). I hope to get out on the bike here in a few minutes, but before I go, here are a few reminders:
- As I mentioned above, the Tour starts today and I am running a contest in conjunction with Como Sur Bicicleta Wines. If you have not entered already, you can enter a team at Velogames.com until 9:00 a.m. Enter a team and then join our Como Sur Mini-League (code 960629418). You can also win by tweeting the winner of the daily stage to Como Sur (@ConoSurWines) and me (@masi3v) with the hashtag #TourDeBicicleta. What is at stake? Several bottles of wine and a few cycling jerseys from Como Sur Bicicleta! More info can be found HERE.
- The latest Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC34) is underway. The deadline is a few weeks off, but it is never too early to start writing! All the details can be found HERE.
- Even though the ride to Austin is over, you can still contribute! I originally had hoped to raise $500, but as of this morning, I am hovering just under $1000. If all of you give just a few bucks, it will push me into the four digits! Every dollar counts!
Have a Happy Saturday!
