Tour de France
« on: 19:09, 06 July 14 »
I have been watching the Yorkshire (York->Sheffield) part of the Tour de France.

It was good to see them cycling along roads I know and into the city of Sheffield.

They did very well up Jenkins hill: I have to drop down into first gear for that hill in my poor old car. It's one of the routes I take to go back home.

They also cycled along Brightside Lane. I take that route when I cycle. I can now pretend I'm cycling in the Tour de France.  ;D

Have you tried using performance enhancing drugs on your car? It seems to work for those Tour de France guys :D

Bryce.
not yet. do you have a handy way I can inject nitrous into the engine without blowing it up?
anything cpc based, preferably one with an x-mem expansion.

back to the race, it was certainly impressive how quickly they got up that hill.
it's fairly steep and drags on around a few corners.
