it was the best of times

It was the blurst of times.

People. This is how I always look back on July.

Are you prepared?

The TOUR DE FRANCE IS STARTING. As is my truly awesome incredibly sporadic not very cycling related coverage. It’ll be the One to Watch. Or the Two. Or the Three. I have outfit issues already. I don’t even want to think about the numbers of men who will be wearing white knicks after this TDF.

Speaking of outfit issues, in my UNRELENTING PURSUIT of the Specialized-Lululemon Kit, I will also be attempting to cover the Giro Donne, which for those who don’t know is the women’s tour happening at the same time. I do not speak Italian, their website is shit and Phil should do their coverage. I am literally so confused by this, that I didn’t even know if this post was a prediction or a description. But my lack of knowledge deters me not. For I can google and in this way I can muddle through.

Get ready. You are unlikely to learn anything about anything that isn’t me. But hey, I love you all. All three of you.
