Tour de Fleece 2015

I know it should read Tour de France But in the world of spinners, we make it the Tour de Fleece!  These are the days we can treadle our spinning wheels, watch the race and spin through our stash!
What will you be spinning?  What wheel will you use?  How much will you accomplish on your daily pedaling? 
There is a group on Ravelry, of course and you can join in.  Spin a little, spin a lot--it's all about spinning the stash!!


Here are the (Rules)

Challenge Yourself.
Spin.
Have fun.

This year, the Tour de Fleece starts on Saturday July 4 and runs until Sunday July 26th, 2015.
Guidelines (NOT RULES):
  • Spin every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday July 4 through Sunday July 26th. Days of rest: Monday, July 13th and Tuesday, July 21st. (Just like the actual tour.)
  • Spin something challenging on the challenge day (usually the toughest high mountain stage: this year, it’s Stage 18, on Thursday, July 23rd, when they will climb 5 mountains, including the 1,924m high Col du Glandon).
  • Wear yellow on Sunday July 26th to announce victory. Why not wear yellow on any day you feel particularly successful? (Yellow is the color of the race leader in the Tour - but here we are all ‘race leaders’) Other colors if desired: Green (sprinter - think FAST), Polka-dot (climber - as in uphill), and white (rookie).
