Le Tour de France Challenge

Who wants a challenge?

Le Tour de France starts this Saturday, July 5, and runs through the 27th. Why not challenge yourself with a little cycling, too?

The rules:

1. Sign up HERE. It's completely free, and 100% on the honor system. Don't lie about your mileage, please- winners will be drawn at random, so it won't help. 

2. Use the Rafflecopter link below to enter the giveaway. Or not. But you have to be in it to win it.

3. Beginning Saturday, log your culmulative miles during each section of le Tour (July 5-14, 6-20, and 20-27). Mileage from Tour rest days will not count! The idea is that we are symbolically riding with them, like a personal Tour de Wherever-you-live. Get it? Again, this is on the honor system. Please don't lie. Your pants might catch on fire.

4. During the last week, ride one time trial- any distance! Just pick a route and ride hard, then report your time and distance so we can see what a rockstar you are (we are all rock stars, but seeing it in print makes it official).

At the end, I will draw two random winners: one for a $10 iTunes gift card, and the other for a cycling- themed bracelet! Winner will be chosen at random using Rafflecopter on July 28 and notified via email. You must respond within 48 hours to claim your prize or it will be forfeit, and a new winner will be drawn. 

Remember to enter the giveaway here!

(NOTE: international entries are welcome, but will only be eligible for the bracelet. Sorry, not my rules- The iTunes gift card can only be used in the States)

So, what do you say? Are you in? Then SIGN UP NOW!

If there are any problems with the spreadsheet, please let me know... and be patient. This is my first time using one! Thanks.

This challenge is a last-minute creation of my own. There is no sponsorship nor endorsement by any other parties. I felt like challenging myself, and thought maybe there would be at least two other crazies. All prizes have been furnished by yours truly. All bragging rights will be your own.


  1. P.S. I think you need to open the spreadsheet for editing. I can't seem to put my name in.

  2. If I had cable, I would. Stupid cable.


FREE questions and comments! Complaints will be read for a nominal fee of $17,000.
