Viva le Tour de France!


The most famous bike race in the world is coming up and you don't have to miss a minute of it! Starting on July 2nd, The Broken Spoke in partnership with The Undertown will be showing this exciting cycling race across France. The Undertown will open its doors at 6:30 am and have the big screen TV going and the coffee flowing for this epic race.

But hold onto your helmets, because this year is the 100th year anniversary of the Col de Galibier first ascent by the cyclists of the 1911 Tour de France. But this year, those contending will have to climb the 2, 645 metres twice, with only a 24 hour rest in between, making it the highest finish for the 18th stage in Tour de France history! You won't want to miss it!
