A Miscellany of Le Tour de France - Day 19
1926 Lucien Buysse’s daughter sadly died two weeks before the Tour.
Heartbroken, his family urged him to race, which made him search deep within himself to win one of the most gruelling stages in the history of the Tour.
Stage 10 was been described as ‘The Day From Hell’. The peleton suffered in the most atrocious weather conditions.
Setting off at 2am in freezing fog, the rain and snow beat down on the riders, forcing many to walk the sodden, muddy paths. Of 126 starters, only 54 finished, some as late as midnight, having ridden for a staggering 22 hours.
Every day until the Grand Depart, we’ll be sharing 100 stories from the last 100 years, a design per day until the greatest show on earth begins. You can see the full set of stories, and purchase postcards and prints, at www.thehandmadecyclist.com

I didn’t take this picture: @ashleygruber did. If you like it, you should follow her. If you’ve liked our shots this spring, you should check out the piece we did at www.cyclingtips.com.au on our favorite images from the cobbled classics!

Did you really say, Ride lots? That quote’s been attributed to you.
Sorry?

Ride lots.
Ride lots?

Yeah. Did you ever say that? Actually? Everyone says, “Eddy Merckx says, Ride lots.”
What’s it mean, ride lots?

It means ride a lot.
Yes, I ride lots. Yes.

But do you know if you ever…I mean, that’s—people in America have T-shirts that say ride lots.
Yeah, ride lots. Yeah. Yeah. I ride lots…Ride lots.
