The 101st Tour de France is over. It’s been quite a ride from Leeds to Paris the long way around. Now, a few days of reflection and contemplation before ramping it all up to finish a production… a magazine has to be made. We’re looking forward to bringing you RIDE #65, due out in the first week of September (but hopefully on sale a little sooner)… in the meantime, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks for all your feedback and support on our social media pages throughout the race. It’s been a different approach for me this year and a most enjoyable one.
It’s not easy to summarise all that happens during the three weeks of a race like the Tour but I assure you: a lot has been experienced, seen, photographed and written about.
Soon: the long flight home. But before that, here’s a collection of images from the final stage of the race – the showdown on the Champs-Elysées.
