Elite Women will race Tour de France in 14′

Emma Pooley, women’s pro cyclist & one of the three women who pushed race organizers to create a women’s race at Le Tour de France, said it all “Rome wasn’t built in a day”.  She was rationalizing the Amaury Sports Organization’s (ASO) decision to make the inaugural ladies La Course by Le Tour de France  a one-day, criterium-style event, not a three-week Grand Tour.

It was a solid reaction with an encouraging message. There will be many ups and downs in the journey to your goal, but every step is a relative leap as compared to if you had done nothing at all…

I can relate and find some inspiration in their efforts. My back hurts & my eyes burn from late nights in front of my computer working on website designs, content and ideas. I wake up early and well, kinda fresh, to explore CSS code just so I can get out before 8 for a run, swim or bike ride (soon). My day job is all consuming from 9 to 5 and beyond, but I believe it in and it to pay the bills … all the while I LOVE IT! I am so excited about Bikenridge I could burst, but as Emma reminds us … “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”

“Félicitations” to the women that made La Course by Le Tour de France happen … Read more about their adventure and what others are thinking about the ASO’s decision. What do you think about Women being part of the 3-week Tour de France in the future?
