Tour de France 2009   
Have you been following the Tour de France this year?  Admittedly, I watch very little television but feel compelled to join my husband for a bit each day, as much to see the scenery as the racers. What glorious countryside this is!

Running from Saturday July 4th to Sunday July 26th 2009, the 96th Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,500 kilometres.There is a special breed of cyclist that specializes in a certain type of racing in a handful of stages during each edition of the Tour de France...

These 21 stages have the following profiles:
  • 10 flat stages,
  • 7 mountain stages,
  • 1 medium mountain stage,
  • 2 individual time-trial stages,
  • 1 team time-trial stage.

This year's race went through the town of Capestang in the Languedoc where our family lived in 2002-2003. Interestingly enough, THREE of our our FOUR home shares are nearby: La Placette, Crazy for Cruzy, and Maison Bleue LLC. Does anyone know if the race went near UZES, where our fall home share will be?
