Good old Lance may be dodging potholes of controversy these days, but the Tour de France still reigns supreme as the premier bike event in the world. Most of us love watching what we could never accomplish ourselves, and the starting flag lowers July 2 as the arduous bike ride begins across 2,100 miles of France’s mountains, valleys, and cities. Catch Stage 9 in the mountain towns of Val-d'Isere and Briancon if you want to see the bikers struggle up the Alps. It’s an odd sort of entertainment, but we like it anyway. To channel your inner Armstrong, here are some bike races coming up in the month of July.

35th Annual One Helluva Ride
July 9, Chelsea, Michigan

Moab to St. George
July 9, Utah

The Goat Ride
July 9, Nashville, Indiana

Tour de Queens
July 10, Queens, New York

Ball and Chain Century
July 24, Salisbury, Maryland

Saints to Sinners Bike Relay
July 29 & 30, Utah to Nevada
