Just to alert you to @JohnCyclopunk's blogs, partly about cycling, but lots more: very knowledgeable about slow France.

Without doubt the most thorough Tour de France Stage 17 Preview.

You know your cycling, and your pages on France are excellent (I'm ½ French, worked as a French interpreter for 20+years) and you don't just throw photos online (w/o text, photos are near worthless) but give us good explanatory text. In sum I'm truly surprised you don't have 1000 followers easily.

I'll retweet @JohnCyclopunk a lot, since (incomprehensibly!!) he has only 70 followers. He's very savvy about #cycling.
