Are there mountains in your area? I only see the sea (for your good navigators) and the meadow (for your sheep and your rugby players) LOL

New Zealand is a young country geographically, like Japan, so not all eroded flat. Plenty of variety. Plenty of ups.:S
My local hard training ride has a half hour climb, with some 15% gradients (I do them at old man pace !)
You ride?
.
Tough result today for Marc Hirschi. He deserved to win that stage.

Sounds nice. Gentle rolling countryside?
The nearest we've been was the drive from Paris to Nancy. Similar?

The inhabitants of Lyon paid for the statue to honor their king Louis le Grand, n°14, named "roi soleil", who built Versailles palace. He liked to disguise himself as Apollo.. lol. It was before James Cook ;)
Some time later, they applauded when Paris cut off the head of his great-grandson!
The statue has been removed several times in history.
Today, it is the meeting point for lovers ...

Yeah, removing statues of early colonials because they are currently judged to have done more harm than good is topical here at the moment also.
.
Didn't get to watch that stage, sorry to miss Lyon.
Seeing the scenery and old buildings is part of the attraction of Le Tour. It is a quality visual production, great advertisement for French tourism.
We have scenery here of course, but our history is young so even 100 year old buildings are uncommon.

Tomorrow the Tour de France will pass by the shores of Lake Paladru, a lake country at the foot of the Alps at the edge of which was born Adolphe (sic) Célestin PEGOUD (1889-1915) 1st ace of WW1.
LOL
He has his little museum there.
;)

On the morning of August 31, 1915, Second Lieutenant Célestin Adolphe Pégoud leads his last fight. He is alone opposed to Corporal Otto Kandulski - who was his pupil LOL - and to the gunner Lieutenant Von Bilitz. Pégoud was shot in the head at an altitude of 2,000 m above Petit-Croix, east of Belfort, at the age of 26. He has just been appointed knight of the Legion of Honor and has been awarded the Croix de Guerre with palms. He never knew it. On September 6, the German crew returned to the scene of the fight and threw a laurel wreath bearing the inscription “In Pégoud, died a hero for his country”.
