Rest Day

"The Tour is won by sleeping" said Magne, winner in 1931 & 1934. Still true today, a successful rest day is essential ahead of the Pyrenees.

 Sadly, the cats did not get this memo and opted for their usual Tour wake-up time of 5 a.m.


As for a rest day beverage option, perhaps Riesling?
Thus far, I've been too busy with the Wines of the Tour to participate, but a reminder that it is 

Be sure to check out their website for events around the country: http://summerofriesling.com/wp/http://summerofriesling.com/wp/.

That said, perhaps some Selbach-Oster here tonight. 



  1. Nice blog. I've never seen the relationship between wine and Tour.

    Fortunately, in Spain we have Contador for both ;)

    See you


  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
