If a lot of people cheer together, Wiggo's more likely to win...

All the Team Sky boys will be whisked straight to London on the first flight to get ready for the Olympic Games as soon as they hit Paris - even if Wiggins wins - but there's no need for you to skip the post-Tour party.

Team Sky are in a celebratory mood already, annoucing 11 pubs in the UK where you can go to cheer on Wiggo and co. this weekend with "live Tour de France coverage, beer, cider, wine, garlic and a whole lot of Joie de Vivre".

And they're not the only ones - at Look Mum No Hands in London, there's a Grand Arrive event on Sunday, where you can "drink champagne and watch Cav win", or at Rapha Cycle Club London there's an end of Tour party to coincide with the opening of the club itself, with screenings of the event.

The Team Sky Vive le Tour venues are as follows:

Isaacs on the Quay, Ipswich

Ye Olde Bell and Steelyard, Woodbridge

The Approach, Nottingham

The Strickland Arms, Penrith

The White Hart, Uttoxeter

The Railway Inn, Welshpool

The Black Cock Inn, Caerphilly

The Beaver Inn, Bideford

King William IV, West Horsley

The Prince of Wales, Dorking

The Abinger Hatch, Dorking 

 

Let us know if you've heard of any other public Tour parties, and we'll add them to the list!

After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.

And why bother with any in Manchester, which has nothing to do with British Cycling?!

Maybe because nowhere in Manchester wants to get involved? Hard to believe but if someone don't want to organise something nowt will happen. These things don't materialize out of thin air.

In the space of a few posts we have three or four Manc based people wanting somewhere to watch the Tour.

I'm guessing if somewhere was advertising a tour party/function people would turn up.
