Join us for Le Tour de Fleece and spin along with The Village Yarn and Fiber Shop and Team Alpacaraca! Not a spinner? Bring your crochet / knitting or just come by to find out more about this fun craft.  We'll be spinning along each Sunday in July from 1-4p at the shop.

Guidelines (NOT RULES):

This year, the Tour de Fleece starts on July 5 and runs until Sunday July 27th, 2014.

  • Spin every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday July 5 through Sunday July 27th. Days of rest: Tuesday, July 15th and Monday July 21st. (Just like the actual tour.)
  • Spin something challenging on the challenge day (usually the toughest high mountain stage: this year, it’s Stage 14, on Saturday, July 19th, when they climb over 3,000m at grades from 4-6%).
  • Wear yellow on Sunday July 27th to announce victory. Why not wear yellow on any day you feel particularly successful? (Yellow is the color of the race leader in the Tour - but here we are all ‘race leaders’) Other colors if desired: Green (sprinter - think FAST), Polka-dot (climber - as in uphill), and white (rookie).

Challenge Yourself.
Spin.
Have Fun.
