Tour de France 2013

For the first time ever since its beginning, “Le Tour” is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a start on the island of Corsica.   

Have been following le grand boucle since my childhood, almost for eight decades. We won’t have a day-by-day post on this amazing, 23-day cycling event, there are lots of sites on the Net including the official site.   
Have never been to Corsica with all our global travels, so we’re enjoying the panorama views of vineyards, villages, and yes - mountains. Today the riders cross from Bastia to Ajaccio, at times at passes over 1,500m.
