This year's Tour de Fleece (per the dates of the Tour de France) officially begins July 4th and concludes on July 26th. Like faithful spinners everywhere, we've got some pre-Tour activities planned for June, and weekly events which will run through July. Many thanks to Danielle Beaupré for creating the series of themes and workshops for all of us to experience in the upcoming months. French speak and actual cycling are optional. Prizes will be awarded!
