TdF: Stages 3 - 10: Big Red Returns From The Shops

Back from the shops - with provisions!Flipping the bird at Gabriel
Drinkies and flipping the bird at Gabriel

Continuing with Le Big Red Fat Cat's pissweak Stage by Stage TdF commentary. Trackback to TdF: Stage 1 & 2 - Down the Shops and Le Tour bonheur!
Stages 3 - 6: Le Kitty back from the shops with plenty of provisions & bevvies. The Cat settles in for a mega session of Russ's
TdF Drinking Game until July 25. Between the Chivas, Goon, Honey Porter & Bundy, it's gonna get gruesome. So please spare us the sauteed snails, larks tongues in aspic and jaunty accordion toons. Garçon, bring us more Kirsch!

Birdys in the treesIn awe of Lance's cadence
Twittering at the birds. Oooo Lalala! Lance spins up the mountain

Stage 7 - 10: Le Kitty sculls three Scotch fingers and starts yipping at birds on telly. Stage 10: In awe of Lance's cadence...introducing Oppy the kangaroo who's also keeping tabs on Le Tour. But it's all ghost written of course. We all know roo's can't talk. Whats up skip? A Russian doping conspiracy? crikey! Can't get enough Silly Cat links? Well, pop over to my Other Other blog: Beers and Kittys

  • Sweet insanity. Stay away from mulled wine and any german beers. You'll be fine.

  • 5km to teh summit. I've heard that the run up to Cresta in the Alpine Classic is like this. Shit, only six months to prep & train.

  • I don't know if your liver can take six months of training this way.

  • Pah! I'll just combine road & singlespeed training. Less gears, more beers!

  • cileo, you bring a whole new meaning to the term 'catsuit.' :D

  • Cileo, If that red suit thing is the new cycling gear, then I'm all for it. 'cause I'm starting to tire of the bug eyed space alien look.

    Why don't you do a spread on cycling fashion? I want to know why no-one cycles in jeans anymore, when in my day no-one would have dreamed of cycling in anything else.

    Do I need to plaster myself in day-glo logos before throwing a leg over the old dragster?

    Was the introduction of the helmet the beach head for the whole bug eyed space alien industry?

    Why do I feel like an idiot when I ride in track suit pants?

    There's a story here just waiting to be told.

  • Hey, you're giving me far too many ideas.

    Cycling 101 For Suburban Dags

  • I still have the bicycle clips for keeping my 1970's flagged jeans out of the spokes . ..

  • Is that 'Lark's Tongues in Aspic' a King Crimson reference? Prog rock nerds?

  • That LP was a bit too early for us. But we're a big fan of the later "Sleepless" era
