Could just hire a bike and cycle beside them?

I've not. Will give it a go but I'm not hopeful.

Fair doos. I largely agree about Wimbledon attendees. It's why I much prefer going to Roland Garros than Wimbledon. 

Im not going to let other people being cunts stop me doing something I love doing. 

Plus it'll be combined with a weekend boozing in London. I just hope the English have been fucked out the euros by then. 

Do you watch the tennis from one of the corporate boxes mixing with fellow company directors and executives (a perk of working for Balfour Beatty), or are you a paying customer?

Their original version of Ghetto Gospel was far superior.

My dad took us to see the Tour de France while camping there as kids. 
 

Hour drive to get there, wait around for a couple of hours, all past you in ten minutes, drive back.

Highlight was a Coca Cola (fuck Ronnie) tour bus dishing out cheap tat to us kids. 
 

Shite day never watched it since. 
 

Golf was slightly better, wouldn’t go back unless it was to get pished at the Ryder cup and abuse yanks.

Unlucky man. 

I got Court 1 on middle Saturday. When I logged on I opened two windows, one for centre & one for court 1. 

The queue for centre had 35k in it, only 5k for court 1. 

I had 120,000 people in front of me.😂

Couldn't think of anything worse than being surrounded by the sort of fans you get at tennis, especially Wimbledon. 

 

The majority are those from a privileged background who think it's exceptionally funny to shout 'come on Tim' at whoever they are watching, whilst waving union jacks, quaffing pims or champagne and eating strawberries and cream.

*Edit* not saying I don't enjoy watching tennis, because I do. But from the comfort of my own home rather than being surrounded by those at Wimbledon, they let the sport down 

 

Utter rubbish

I’ve watched that twice , when Ive been in France .The procession/cavalcade before the riders arrive is good , fancy floats , free things getting thrown into the crowd etc.

When the cyclists arrive they pass by in seconds at an obscene pace and it’s a bit of an anticlimax tbh.

If you want a kicking from the crowd or a French copper give it a go.

Love events like that where you get the daft cunts saying they got up before bedtime to be there and when ‘it’ arrives everyone holds up their phone or my personal favourite an iPad above their head to film it thus blocking everyone’s view.

I just don’t get the attraction.  Here, look at my video of hands and arms and phones obscuring that blur in the background which is 0.03 seconds of the Tour de France of which every fucking unobscured second is live on fucking Eurosport!
