Great photos!
I've always admired the old traditions in sport that have survived the passage of time.
I recall that if the Tour was passing the hometown of one of the riders, the peloton allowed him to ride ahead and have a glass of wine with his family.
He was honour bound not to take advantage in any way.
Is that still the case?
Classy!

When I visit Toronto I try to see a Blue Jays baseball game.
Last time I was delighted that they still sing "Take me out to the ball game" for the 7th innings stretch.
Love stuff like that.

There is still honour among most of the riders in the peloton as was shown on the very first day when there were all the accidents near the end.
