Tour de France

I almost forgot--the Tour de France begins today!

For the next few weeks you can bring France into your home by following the 96th tour. The tour begins today in Monaco and will finish 21 days from now with the ride down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

You can click on the pic to see this year's route, and you can listen to the story on this clip from National Public Radio.

Wishing all the cyclists bonne chance!
