St. Honore is a popular french bakery in Northwest that plans to show the coverage live. Like last year they’ll kick things off by teaming up with the women’s racing team they sponsor, Sorrella Forte. The team will be on hand to sign autographs and collect used bikes for the Community Cycling Center on opening weekend (July 1-2).
More details on the St. Honore website. My advice: show up early! I’ve heard this place fills to the gills with people.
King Cycle Group, whose headsets will adorn some Tour favorites, just announced their plans. Last year they rocked the Southeast Lucky Lab on every stage. This year they’re moving the party to the new Lucky Lab in Northwest (they’ve got indoor bike racks) where they’ll show replays of the coverage from 5-7PM every day of the Tour (except rest days of course).
King staff will be on hand (a good place to network if you want a job!) and they’re raising money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
I know there will be a ton of other places showing the Tour. Maybe we can get a list going. If I hear of a bunch more I’ll post an update.
