C’est Magnifique! C’est le Tour de France!

This year’s Tour de France was the hundredth edition of the world’s biggest and best bicycle race – and it proved to be a race to remember. Jack Thurston talks with ‘Buffalo’ Bill Chidley about three weeks of outstanding bike racing. Next year the Tour will begin in Yorkshire and cycling journalist Peter Cossins is already excited about the race passing right by his house in Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

    Please can someone wake me when the Bike Show comes back? All this sports programming is getting in the way of the usual wonderful bicycling show.

      Aw, Rowan… the hundredth Tour de France only comes around every so often. And in this show I’ve taken as much of a touring angle as is humanly possible!
