94 Days to the Tour de France, roadside heart art

March 28, 2012

The 2012 Tour de France begins on June 30th, 2012, just 94 days from today. The race brings out artists across the country who design outdoor displays to catch the attention of the helicopters and land 5 seconds of coverage on the live video.

Here’s one display from 2008, the last time I visited the Tour, on the road from Luchon up to the Col de Peyresourde in the Pyrénées. In case the angle obscures the shape…it’s a heart.
