Ask Bike Hugger: Watching Tour de FranceComments

Our Twitter followers ask us questions about gear, bikes, and sometimes their personal lives. We poll a team of experts and respond.
We’re getting asked this a lot and le Tour has never been more watchable. Back in the day, we either watched grainy, foreign-language VCR tapes from some dude with a drug habit that had a satellite or worse ABC’s 20 minutes of ridiculous coverage.
Now we’ve got Vs. in HD with web streaming online.
Streams come and go and Twitter is a good resource to check where people are watching it. Often times, some race fan in Europe will stream the race until his connection craps out or he gets a cease and desist letter.
We’re live blogging and chatting the tour on The Hub.
