Grab bags, café raids and booze – how Tour de France cyclists refuelled in the 1960s

The 3,500-kilometre, 23-day cycling competition known as the Tour de France has long been considered one of the most prestigious and gruelling athletic events in the world. But, as this excerpt from the celebrated French director Louis Malle’s documentary Vive le Tour (1962) demonstrates, even the most intense competitions have their more comical and lighthearted moments. The entertaining clip traces the clumsy yet pivotal practicalities of grabbing meals and refreshments amid the heat of competition. First, slowing as little as possible, the cyclists nab musettes , personalised bags full of food. Later, they drop into cafés on the route, demanding refreshments – the more calories the better, even if that means some wine, champagne or beer. While the musette tradition continues today, the booze raids have been replaced by sugary energy drinks.

Tour de France Riders Used To Raid Cafés For Alcohol (Watch)

tour de france cafe

Well I just found my new favorite thing on the internet.

The clip below is of riders “raiding” cafés during the 1962 Tour de France from the documentary Vive le Tour!

Essentially, world-class athletes would run into a café and demand the proprietor give them beer, wine, champagne, or whatever other alcoholic beverages were available during the middle of the race.

They would then hop back on their bikes and chase after the peloton with their pockets loaded with booze. The idea was to restore calories while  “hydrating” during the hardest parts of the race.

Check it out for yourself… 😂

These were the good ol’ days of athletics. This was long before cyclists were doping and every world-class athlete was treating their bodies as science experiments with calculated workouts and diets.

The Tour de France competitors were simply a large group of chain-smoking, alcoholic bros that could pedal their bicycles faster than anybody else in the world.

I mean, who needs water when you can slug bottles of beer, right?

Tour de France 2022: Cafe du Cycliste’s PETITE BOUCLE

Already into the second week of the Tour de France and the collective enthusiasm for the ‘Grande Boucle’ never seemed stronger. Covid had unfortunately passed its evil wand over the last two editions, eradicating the conviviality which is such a big part of the race. But this year, the supporters and the crazy party atmosphere has been reborn.

Taking advantage of the riders' rest day in Morzine in the heart of Haute Savoie, we launched the invitation for our ‘Petite Boucle’, a collective outing of friends and colleagues that would follow a good part of the route of the next day's stage 10 ( Morzine–Megève) to return to its starting point via the famous Col de Joux Plane. A demanding route, but any ride in this part of France worth venturing on rarely avoids the mountains. 140 kilometres with close to 3000 metres of climbing was on the menu, so it was no walk in the park.

Tour de France 2022 – LE PETITE BOUCLE

8:30 am at Place de Morzine, bright sunshine already heating up the day and the surrounding mountains. No less than six nations were represented in the group of twenty riders including Jérôme Cousin, an ex-professional who participated in the Tour de France just two years ago.

Monsieur Cousin would be our ‘luxury’ ride leader for the day. Group photos taken, we descended for 30 kms to the shores of Lake Geneva. Cooler than expected, the wheels span at high speed in the Dranse valley of Morzine.

Tour de France 2022 – LE PETITE BOUCLE

As a group we estimated seven hours on the road today so, taking the time to enjoy the landscapes, we get to know each other by riding at conversation pace and refuelling regularly. Everyone already knows that the Col de Joux Plane will be the apotheosis for this long outing. We will reach it around 2:00 pm, with the sun high in the sky and the heat close to 28°C.

The viciousness of the climb is undeniable from the first few kilometres. With the average percentage at 9%, Joux Plane is recognised as one of the most difficult mountain passes on the cycling planet, and has an infamous reputation in Tour history.

Tour de France 2022 – LE PETITE BOUCLE

In 2000, Lance Armstrong crushed the competition, especially in the mountain stages. The stage on Joux Plane, however, Richard Virenque set an unbelievable pace; leading Armstrong to experience the dreaded ‘bonk’ or ‘craving’ – also known as hypoglycaemia, where the muscles run out of sugar.

No gifts, no Haribo, no ‘eating the field’ as per usual for the Texan. Alas, Armstrong hit the wall, Jan Ullrich was dropped and Alberto Heras and Virenque continued side-by-side over the crest of Joux Plane. Heras hit the deck on the final corner and Virenque took the stage, much to the delight of the French fans in Morzine.

Tour de France 2022 – LE PETITE BOUCLE

Our riders in 2022 did not have such a bad time as Lance Armstrong. All shone, all climbing at their own pace, which was very high for some trying to keep pace with the ex-pro Jérôme Cousin.

Cousin was a gentleman, encouraging and supporting others as we moved towards the summit. A fizzing descent to Morzine marked a fast and furious end to a memorable day in the mountains, and one of the many great theatres of the Tour de France.

Another Tour : Morzine, July '22

The Tour is life. From the northern cobblestones to the Alps, the Pyrénées to the Champs Élysées. Every dog has its day. The highs and lows, the mountains and the valleys, on and on they race.

It's Ventoux time

When the organisers announced that the Ventoux would be climbed twice in the Tour de France 2021 edition, it was certain that July 7th was going to be a historic day.

Cycling : Tour De France / Stage 16

The route of the Tour de France seems to have hit the airwaves officially today and there is a LOT to cover. Since things are moving rapidly, I will toss out what for me stand out as the highlights

Stage 1: Wait, we are in Italy? For the TOUR?!

I have long surmised, based on nothing more than a list of old Tour routes, that they wanted nothing to do with Italian anything if they could help it. Maybe it was a petty rivalry with the Giro d’Italia, or not so much petty as simply practical — the world doesn’t need a French Giro when it already has a (usually spectacular) Italian one? That’s the generous reading. The likelier scenario is that Henri Desgranges is rolling over in his grave. Anyway, now we will know what it’s like for Canadian fans to watch hockey games played in Arizona.

[Side note: Rimini? Is the Tour currying favor with its temporary hosts by doing a Pantani tribute stage? Was this negotiated into the deal for the Grand Départ? Sigh...]

Stage 2: It’s the Giro dell’Emilia Tribute Stage!!!

tour de france cafe

There’s an old Simpson’s bit where Homer responds to one of his kids feeling ignored by society with “I’m between the ages of 18 and 45, everyone listens to me!” and he pulls out a product called “nuts and gum: together at last!” This is pretty much how I feel right now. The Giro dell’Emilia and the Tour de France. Together at last.

Stage 4: It’s the 1949 Giro Tribute Stage!!!

OK, now they are just trolling me. The stage starts in Pinerolo, finishing point of the famous stage 17 of the 1949 Giro where Coppi went on his solo ride for the ages, and reverses that course over Sestriere and Montgenèvre, before breaking off for a “fuck it, we’re just riding the Galibier” monster stage, before the riders have had time to get used to being back on French soil. I guess they could have stuck with the bit longer and done the Izoard and Vars climbs (Vars shows up in week 3), but you won’t hear me complaining. I will be too busy yelling at everyone to buy Dino Buzzati’s books.

Stage 9: Gravel Is Everything Now

If you weren’t sure that this was the least traditional Tour ever, well... we will get to that more in a bit. But this is another brick in that wall.

tour de france cafe

And it’s all kinds of smart. The riders seem to love it, and are pretty used to bits of off-roading by now anyway. It’s stage 9, early enough to not seal the race but late enough for the opening nerves and crashiness to have worn off. It will have a 99.9% approval rating, a stage even Roger De Vlaeminck can’t complain about. And the bike industry will be positively giddy well past the subsequent rest day.

Multiple Stages: They’re Going Where?!?

Sorry if this isn’t a great map, but... where are these places? What are those climbs?

tour de france cafe

This Tour has probably fewer old standards than any I can remember. Well, the Pyrénéen stages are pretty recognizable, but after that, really only the Galibier stands out. Le Lioran? Superdévoluy? Isola 2000? Col de Couillole? Even some of the repeats are still unusual, like the Cime de la Bonette.

This is all good news to me. I’m not going to geek out on course profiles; I’ve spent enough years getting too excited about “look at that line on my computer! It’s really going up!!” to just do this out of context. What strikes me though is that the riders won’t know a lot of these roads and will have to deal with going off any sort of script. That alone should make for fantastic racing.

Stage 21 AREYOUFUCKINGKIDDINGME!!!

Sorry but I just can’t react to this being the final stage without lapsing into profanity. In a good way.

tour de france cafe

I get that they are skipping Paris for the first time ever — the ultimate break with tradition in the entire sport of cycling. It’s about the Olympics. Or about Parisians getting one Sunday back from the traffic madness associated with hosting sporting events, before the shit really hits the fan. [Presumably all of Paris will have escaped by then, and in fact the lack of a Tour finishing stage gives them an excuse to leave even sooner.]

But this will probably be the single most important stage of the Tour, given how tight even the biggest mountain stages tend to be raced these days (lo, the Roglification!). It’s the longest of the two TTs by 10km, and it includes a fair bit of climbing, to the point where it might force everyone back onto their regular road bike, or something close to it.

It doesn’t have to be shades of 1989 per se, it’s not like we haven’t had loads of decisive cronos on the eve of Paris. But if the biggest problems coming out of 2023 were that Jumbo were too dominant and the race was over a bit early, all of these wrinkles, the balance of skills including off-road ones, capped off with a final day mountain ITT, should solve those “problems” in a dramatic way.

Overall Rating: A++

I like to think I am hard-headed in assessing the Tour course, at least compared to a few other races where I lack all objectivity. So I guess this is my way of saying, way to get creative, ASO! Eventually the riders will decide the race and exciting racing doesn’t always follow exciting course design, but this will be an incredibly refreshing experience if there’s any sort of a GC battle happening at all. I absolutely love it.

What say ye?

Fun facts from our Moscow Metro Tours:

From the very first days of its existence, the Moscow Metro was the object of civil defense, used as a bomb shelter, and designed as a defense for a possible attack on the Soviet Union.

At a depth of 50 to 120 meters lies the second, the coded system of Metro-2 of Moscow subway, which is equipped with everything you need, from food storage to the nuclear button.

According to some sources, the total length of Metro-2 reaches over 150 kilometers.

The Museum was opened on Sportivnaya metro station on November 6, 1967. It features the most interesting models of trains and stations.

Coffee Ring

The first scheme of Moscow Metro looked like a bunch of separate lines. Listen to a myth about Joseph Stalin and the main brown line of Moscow Metro.

Zodiac Metro

According to some astrologers, each of the 12 stops of the Moscow Ring Line corresponds to a particular sign of the zodiac and divides the city into astrological sector.

Astrologers believe that being in a particular zadiac sector of Moscow for a long time, you attract certain energy and events into your life.

Paleontological finds
