It's always nice to be back home after a month on the road. I've been living out of a suitcase since a week before the Tour de France, but now I'm back in my own bed and spending time with my family. It's bliss.

There have been a few training rides to help keep the legs ticking over, but as I write this blog on Saturday night, I know that tomorrow's ride will be my last in the rainbow jersey.
