Stage 1 Tour de France 1924

This is a little extract of a report of the first stage of the 1924 Tour.

Last night,at half past eleven,the men were still dining in a suburban Parisian restaurant.The scene was carnivalesque: from a distance,dressed in their gaudy jerseys,they could of been taken for Chinese lanterns. They downed their last drinks and rose from their seats to leave, but the crowd lifted them in high triumph, for these cyclists were about to compete in the Tour de France.

  1. Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.
