Re: Le Tour is best experienced on TV
Thanks for your twitter feed to Iain's article Gabriel - a thoroughly entertaining read Iain and surely an entente cordiale report winner of the year. The Tour de France Peloton took 27s to traverse the crossroads at the bottom of my street on Tuesday but thanks to the live FranceTV stream I knew exactly when to leave my aircon'd office and walk 400m down the hill in a sweltering 38°C. From where I stood it was tough to see when the peloton would arrive as my viewpoint gave me less than 1s of trigger warning on my video record button. Amazingly the lag between the helicopter camera and my buddy's iPhone was short enough to warn me precisely when to raise my own smartphone above my head and eternalize that unique < half a minute passage in time. Though somehow I felt I didn't quite merit the moment as much as the village butcher and his wife who resembled a pair of fried merguez after standing an hour in the sun. I must invite them round for a Pastis and share the video of them on the opposite sidewalk as bursts of fluorescent lycra mesmerized us all in sudden flash. PS

Le Tour is best experienced on TV
Nice piece Iain. No doubt, Le Tour is best experienced on TV. I went to watch a stage once (in London*) After a two hour wait, the entire peleton went by in about 10 seconds, maybe less.

This part of the set up sounds impressive (and could benefit from a graphic):

"Out on the road, action footage is captured using motorbike cameras; beamed up to helicopters, and on to a circling plane. From there it is sent back to an antenna near the technical zone, and on to the Orange trucks, which distribute the content to international broadcasters."

I must take issue with this lazy characterization -- demonization, even -- of city cyclists.

"those adrenaline-charged city cyclists who will happily mow down errant toddlers to beat a red light?"

Cycling is, in fact, a safe, pleasant and efficient mode of urban transport.

* not in France, as astute geographers will have already noted
