review French Revolutions Cycling the Tour De France French Revolutions Cycling the Tour De France Free read ↠ 6 Ambot aka the Lucky Belgian who won the race at the age of 36 Fans of the Tour de France will learn why the yellow jersey is yellow and how cyclists learned to save precious seconds a race that lasts for three weeks is all about split seconds by relieving themselves en route And if that isn't enough his account of a rural France tarting itself up for its moment in the spotlight leaves popular uaint descriptions of small towns in Provence in the proverbial dust If you either love or hate the French or both you'll want to travel along with Time Moore French Revolutions is Tim Moore's funniest book to date It is also one of the funniest sports books ever writte. Despite claiming not to be cyclist the author decides to cycle the 3630km Tour de France route that is due to take place in a month s time Whilst a few shortcuts occur on the way his efforts are rather remarkable most especially given the number of watering stops that he takes along the way in order to refuel in the appropriate French fashion Whilst the writing is at times witty be aware that the focus is very much on the riders and history of the Tour de France and less on the surrounding countryside and towns that he passes through As such this will appeal to cycling aficionados and most especially to Tour de France nuts than someone who might be looking for a travelogue through France For me I punctured at 44% finished and had to retire from the race

review French Revolutions Cycling the Tour De France French Revolutions Cycling the Tour De France Free read ↠ 6 Not only is it the world's largest and most watched sporting event but also the most fearsome physical challenge ever conceived by man demanding every last ounce of will and strength every last drop of blood sweat and tears If ever there was an athletic exploit specifically not for the faint of heart and feeble of limb this is it So you might ask what is Tim Moore doing cycling itAn extremely good uestion Ignoring the pleading dictates of reason and common sense Moore determined to tackle the Tour de France all 2256 miles of it in the weeks before the professionals entered the stage This decision was one he would regret for nearly its entire length But reade. I m not uite sure how you prepare for biking 3000 km of the Tour de France route by running a couple of times and heading out on the new bike a couple of times But somehow Moore pulled it off And he doesn t pull any punches with the descriptions Wanna know how you d feel after biking just over 254 km in a day arrive in the town of Troyes in the night only to find there s not a hotel room in the entire town but your wife calling to France from England for you found one in a city 13 22 km away so off you go again on your bike finding your feeble bike lights don t cut it in the rural landscape He writesI was relieved to turn off the N19 but not for very long The trees rose up about me and blocked off the moon if the roads hadn t been almost dead straight I d never have made it I could barely make out the fingerposts at all and when I did the only way to read them was to shin up the pole and hold my flashing light an inch away from the lettering An owl hooted I ran over something pulpy There were other sounds I hadn t seen any signs of life for an eon The suggestion that somewhere in this wooded wilderness lay a Holiday Inn was an outrage against logic Wolves certainly vagrant lunatics odds on a solitary cleated foot emerging from recently disturbed soil well the night was youngThere s another great description of him sitting to a meal after a day of biking muddied and worn bits of dead wasps and dried skin falling off his face into his half eaten pasta that was a fantastic bitChapeau Tim Moore Chapeau indeed

My brother an avid cyclist passed this on to me Well I thought this was utter crap Firstly at the beginning he talks about not having done much cycling not being fit does hardly any training nearly falls over trying to get used to clip in pedals etc Yet another in a long line of delusional males or is this ineptitude supposed to engender sympathy or humor in the reader It just irritated me Then he gets started on riding the tour and is suddenly clocking up 100s of kilometers and makes mention to one of the poor hoteliers that encounter him that his bike cost 24000 So there is a hefty smell of bullshit surrounding his attempts at playing the stupid amateur And if he s playing this for laughs it was really shit Not funny at all In fact he just comes across as a gigantic cock Rude and practically xenophobic to the poor French people he encounters
