I figure someone should get this blog going so here we are. For those of you who will be following our adventures I thought it might be helpful to have some basic background info on who we are. My wife and I are both educators in Orange County, North Carolina (North of Chapel Hill). I am an associate principal and my wife teaches 4th grade. We are both experienced cyclist and follow the Tour de France each year divotedly. We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to hearing from anyone who might have questions that they would liked answered about France, the Tour de France, or the Discovery Channel Team. We look forward to posting plenty of pictures and video clips daily for your enjoyment.
