    Or wear lycra.

    On that subject, why are so many cyclists full kit tossers? They can't all be arsenal fans.

    I would quite like to do a bit of bicycling but I’m dammed if I’m going to dress up like a MAMIL

    Is there an alternative dress mode that is acceptable that does not involve bicycle clips or tucking my trousers into my socks?

    I usually wear t shirt and shorts for 30 mile rides.

    You can get normal shorts with padded insides for greater comfort but look normal. For more then 2 hours you would need extra comfort. On a 2 hour ride 30 minutes should be spent standing up as it will improve lung capacity and strengthen calfs.

    Most of the time im riding im wearing my cargo type shorts with 5 pockets which have all manner of useless things in.

    I love cycle shirts have a couple of rapha ones that and drinking craft beer and having grey in my beard mark me out as a liberal even if i dont buy the guardian.

    Delighted for Kristoff! He wasn't going to race TdF this year as he and his were having twins in July, but the delay meant he could race. Perfect start, and first yellow Jersey for a Norwegian rider since Hushovd last had it in 2011.

    Even more impressive to win it then, because he did not have any team mates with him for the last 3km, and there where several sprint teams at the front with many riders. So pretty darn impressive that Kristoff won it all by himself then. And it wasn't even close!

    Got lucky in the positioning the road was to narrow for a proper sprint.

    Rogic if he does not crash looks so strong and good to win it.

    Its great isn't it.

    Makes me wonder whether Covid interrupted training (or doping) routines, so we end up with a more 'random' tour?

    Well done Bennett today (at last)

    And oh for a week in the Ile de Re :):(

    The exact opposite now. Though Roglic looks strong.

    Great not to see one team dominate it.
