This afternoon I received an email from Map My Ride. I opened the email and was very happy to see THE 2012 LE TOUR CHALLENGE IS BACK!!! I couldn't be happier, I quickly signed up for the Le Tour 1,087. That is officially half the distance of the Tour. I wrote yesterday that this imitation tour is for self satisfaction and it still is but if I can kick some butt while reaching a goal I will happily do so. I don't know if it is my love for sports that has made me this way but I need rankings in my life. I'm a bit competitive if you couldn't tell, I know that I wont be in first during this Tour but seeing people ahead of me in the rankings will push me that much more when I'm on the bike. I encourage anyone that is interested to signup for Le Tour at http://www.mapmyride.com/tdf/ you can choose from 100, 544, 1,087 and 2,173 miles.
