#flyingdinghy
So, do you need a boat that can be self transporting between your favourite fishing locations? This years TDF has you covered with the awesome #flyingdinghy (not an IRB with a hang glider – it’s a flying boat!)


#OGEBannerGate
Just in case you thought the only location in the world that you wedge large transport is the bridge near the South Melbourne market – OGE tries for the TDF bus limbo championship!

The unsung heroes of the Tour de France – the cows.

”We’ll be watching the Tour on the TV,” Mr Wiggins said. ”SBS has a great tour tracker app which we’ll check on the iPad and we’ll use the other one to look at Twitter. Sometimes you want to know who the rider is … so you’re also Googling on the laptop.”
Ms Toohill said: ”There’s awhole community that establishes itself around the time of the Tour de France.”
And it can be a quirky community. A popular Australian Twitter account is dedicated to ”the unsung heroes of the Tour de France” – its cows.
