Rouleur Conversations: A Tour-less July with Ned Boulting

Posted on

In the overall scheme of things, one delayed bike race is no big deal – but it’s surprising how much the Tour De France has become an integral part of so many people’s July. Ned Boulting hasn’t spent July at home since 2003 but he’s hoping to be back on the road in a couple of weeks as racing restarts including, we hope, the Tour De France.

He’s also reflecting on cycling and transport post lockdown. Rouleur’s Miles Baker-Clarke takes us through the latest gear and kit in the Emporium, while presenter Ian Parkinson eyes up Rapha’s latest glasses.
