We are mere days away from the 2011 Tour de France, during this epic bike race there are other events that coincide with it. Namely, the Tour de Fleece.
Last year I made my first attempt and failed miserably. I figure after my two big spinning ‘wins’ this year so far (Hawkesbury Spinning Comp and my first Back to Back), I’ll jump in again and give it a go.
This year, I plan to finish what I started last year! That equates to about 180g of cobweb singles to 2ply into a laceweight of phenomenal length. I’ve cleaned off the wheel in preperation, and I will get the fibre out and get it ready to go between now and July 2nd.
I will need to spin about 15g per day, to give me time to ply as well.
I’m pumped for the Tour de Fleece 2011!
