If you're a Francophile or a bicyclist, you've probably spent at least some time this month watching men in spandex race their way through the French countryside. Lucky for Tour de France fans, Cafe Presse is offering up a much needed escape from bite-sized ESPN recaps. Starting at 7 a.m. tomorrow, Friday and Saturday, you can belly up to the bar or grab a seat in the cafe's front room to watch taped (commercial-free!) footage of the race. What a fantastic way to start the day--watching the world's most famous (and grueling) bike race over a warm pain au chocolat.
Hop on your bike and head to Presse which has ample parking this week for Tour de France fans.
You can even dress up in super-chic "Le Tour de France" gear.
With just three more days of riding to go, you'd be wise to wise to crawl out of bed a bit earlier and make the ride to Presse (1117 12th Ave., Capitol Hill). Sleepy heads can also watch a much-later replay of the day's race at 3 p.m.
