Photographer's Note

If you have ever followed 搇e Tour on TV, you have probably seen aerial views of themes placed in fields near the route. This bike, formed out of wine bottles, was constructed for the 2003 Tour de France, which passed right through Peynier. It was apparently an effort to publicize the local Ste. Victoire wine.

For those of you interested in wine:
L扐OC C魌es de Provence Sainte Victoire (1/6/2005)
Premi鑢e appellation sous r間ionale des C魌es de Provence
Des contreforts de la montagne Sainte-Victoire, inspiratrice de C閦anne, aux cha頽ons de l扥lympe et de l扐ur閘ien, 22 vignerons (17 domaines et 5 caves coop閞atives) se sont regroup閟 d鑣 1990 et ont longuement travaill pour obtenir leur appellation sous r間ionale sp閏ifique. Quinze ann閑s ont donc 閠 n閏essaires pour donner la Provence ce nouvel atout, mais ces vignerons ont aujourd抙ui la possibilit de commercialiser un vin de haute qualit sous l扐ppellation C魌es de Provence Sainte-Victoire.

For those of you who have never seen the Tour de France in person:
The Tour is a traveling publicity show! As you know, the cyclists are adorned with all sorts of brand names and logos. What you probably don抰 know, there is a publicity parade which arrives approximately an hour before the cyclists. This involves vehicles bedecked with all sorts of 損ub. Most are passing out promotional materials, food samples and other goods. This procession lasts about 15 minutes. The cyclists pass in about 15 seconds! I wonder which is the 搒ide-show?
