10 ways to tell you're watching too much Tour de France on television

If there is such a thing as watching too much cycling on television, how can you tell?

Watching cycling on television

Watching bike racing on television takes a very special kind of commitment. Twenty one stages of the Tour de France, with at least four hours apiece, means that you have an enviable power of concentration and sense of loyalty to follow every second of the action. And possibly no job to go to.

That amount of commitment can, however, sometimes mean your everyday life gets tainted by your fanatical viewing of professional cycling on the small screen. Reluctantly, we admit that there may be a point where you can watch too much cycling on television.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
