Vive le Tour!

i try and avoid simply reposting things that are available elsewhere. it’s a simple thing in my head – a series of links don’t really constitute a blog. this tends to be the modus operandi of pretty much all fixed wheel blogs and they end up being all wardrobe and no narnia. they don’t generate content, they just borrow it. Eschewing my own advice, here’s an amazing short film of the 1963 tour by Louis Malle which is really hard to find. Happy Christmas!

  1. I saw this great film at the Watershed cinema in Bristol during their cycle week in September this year. They also showed Pour un Maillot Jaune which is a documentary without narration from 1965. It’s on youtube and worth watching.
