Ladies start your engines, the Buns on Bikes tour is about to start. What is not to love? 21 days of watching tight, perspiring bottoms in lycra, beautiful French villages, sexy accents and panoramic scenery (the route changes every year). Viewing the Tour de France on TV is a veritable smorgasbord for confirmed couch potatoes. Especially in Australia, where, because of the time difference, it is aired on late night TV in winter. So work up a sweat on the sofa dressed in yellow jersey, with a glass of French something or other and a bite of croque Monsieur. Vive la France!
