Getting Back to Work! And a new Gran Fondo Giro d'Italia

My apologies for about being out of the loop the past three weeks. There was this event called the Tour de France that was occupying my attention! Being in California, I would record the each day's stage and then watch it throughout the day, sometimes catching the finish in the evening after starting in the morning! This was certainly a tour with lots of drama. There were times when I thought that Froome was going to lose the lead the next stage because his team looked weak. And then, boom, they bounce back. What I most enjoyed about this year's Tour was the emergence of a new group of fresh faces, untarnished by the past 10 to 15 years of drug use, who give us hope for some exciting races in the years ahead.
