The 2011 Tour de Fleece starts today. (There may be another Tour going on, but that's secondary ;) )
From the Ravelry group pages:
his year, the Tour de Fleece starts Saturday July 2nd and runs until Sunday July 24th, 2011.
Guidelines (NOT RULES):
- Spin every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday July 2nd through Sunday July 24th. Days of rest: Monday July 11th, Monday July 18st. (Just like the actual tour)
- Spin something challenging Friday July 22nd. (The Tour’s toughest mountain stage over the Col du Galibier for the second time, and finishing up on Alpe d’Huez.)
- Wear yellow on Sunday July 24th to announce victory. Why not wear yellow on any day you feel particularly successful? (Yellow is the color of the race leader in the Tour - but here we are all ‘race leaders’)
- Other colors if desired: Green (sprinter - think FAST), Polka-dot (climber - as in uphill), and white (rookie)
Later today I will be starting with the appropriately yellow Nowhere to Hide from My Heart Exposed. Can't wait, but it will have to as the regular Saturday morning stuff is getting in the way.
