Le Tour de Fromage
The 2007 Tour de France starts on the 7th of July. In an attempt to offer something different to Gabriel Gate's live coverage introduction on SBS, I am going to attempt the kirkfood, "Tour de Fromage" by blog. 20 cheeses in 20 days, following the route of the most gruelling race in the world.
If you've ever wondered where the great cheese of France come from or a little bit of history about them then hang on my wheel with the Peloton and savour the flavours. The tour takes in some of the most breathtaking French countryside and passes through, arguably, some of the most famous cheese making regions in the world.
As a non competitive cyclist, this was the best way I could think, of being able to follow all the tour action while I was at work. (Hidden agenda)
From the prologue in London to the nail biting finish at the Champs Elysee in Paris, the tour chews up 3550 kms of time trials, mountain climbs, sprints and flat stages. I'm sure that we will find some interesting cheese to feature during the race.
To follow me on the full tour and not miss a piece of the cheese action, subscribe to my RSS feed and cheer on the riders as we chomp around France.
So enough of banging the baguette! Strap on your helmet, ease into the saddle, clip in and enjoy the ride.
