Watch the Tour de France at these three local hangouts

The 2017 Tour de France is going full steam ahead. As the racers head into stage seven of the 21-stage event, there’s already been quite a bit of drama.

Unfortunately it’s hard to find good TV coverage in the U.S. and if you’re like me — even if you’d like to keep up — it’s sort of a pain if you don’t have a big cable TV package. And even if you find a good streaming package online, it’s kind of nice to watch a stage in public. Who knows, you might meet other people as excited about bike racing as you are.

If you’re looking for a fun and reliable place to see the pain and suffering and glory unfold, look no further than these three local hangouts. Each one of them will have the day’s stage on a big-screen starting at 5:00 pm.:


BAR Botellón (606 NE Davis Street)

Jackrabbit PDX (830 SW 6th Ave)

Full-service restaurant and bar

Velo Cult (1969 NE 42nd)
