Today, the Tour de France will conquer the highest point in the 21-stage race with a summit of Col d’Izoard in the Hautes-Alpes. A perfect opportunity to share this humorous vintage French postcard by Gougeon.
To escape from the humdrum daily round, to enjoy the beauties of nature and the open air, to roam far away across the frontiers. . . That is the dream of young and old! A dream which can come true for everyone, however, even without a well-filled purse and plenty of time to spare. No matter how short your vacation may be, you can have a wonderful trip by using the finest of all vehicles for tourist travel: the bicycle.

As for today. . . Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy the holiday and as always, go USA!
