Tim Moore is lazy and proud of it. His interest in cycling involves watching the Tour de France on television while sitting on the couch drinking beer.
Suddenly, in his thirties and totally out of shape, Moore decides to ride the Tour de France. He feels some of the agony that the real riders have to go through in the toughest sporting event of them all.
Retracing the route of that year's tour, Moore also gains an insight into the French people and how different they can be in different parts of the country and how the Tour can help even the most desolate of small towns enjoy their day in the sun.
