I'm not sure what it is about the Tour De France that sucks me in, but I love to watch it. You wouldn't think that watching a bicycle race on television could be compelling, but it is. As we come into the final stages of this year's Tour De France seeing a 37-year old Lance Armstrong with a shot at standing on the podium is inspiring. But for me it's more than just Lance and his amazing story. I love the strategy and seeing the French countryside dotted with crazy fans. As the race winds down this year I thought I would put together a list of bicycle songs that I feel are the very best. Some of them are obvious picks, others not so much, but they're all excellent in their own way.
