The finish for today’s stage (Friday) of the Tour de France is Fougeres; a town where many members of Phoenix-CTC have stayed overnight on cycle tours over the years. Probably the earliest occasion was twenty one years ago when six members stayed at Fougeres on the NSPCC Bikeathon in 1994. The most recent occasion was five weeks ago on the St Malo to Cherbourg Cycle Tour.
Highlights of today’s stage will be on ITV4 at 7.00 pm. Should make for interesting watching.
