Do you love the Tour De France? Come on down to the Dot and watch the exciting stage 17! Got this today from a DotBiker.

Hi all,

Come on down to the ASHMONT GRILL this Wednesday night, July 23rd to watch the monster 17th stage of the Tour de France. This stage includes three beyond category climbs – over 15000 feet of climbing ending on the legendary Alpe d’Huez. This will be a very exciting stage with final classification implications. Even if you’re not following the Tour come down for the fun of it and have some great food and drink at the Ashmont Grill, a local business that has been very supportive of DotBike and other community groups.

John Moore, a DotBiker and member of the Blue Hills Cycling Club made arrangements with Chris Douglas, the owner of the Grill, to have the tour showing on the big flat screen near the high tops in the bar area. The coverage starts at 8:00 p.m. but plan on arriving nearer 7:30 to get yourself a good seat.

Thanks John for initiating this fun idea.

cheers,
Andy
