The Tour de France begins a week from today—in London. Perhaps, in light of events in Great Britain during the past two days, the Tour organizers should move it to Paris. If I were a Tour participant, I’d be concerned for my safety. When you’re out on the road, either in the peloton or alone (in an individual time trial), you’re vulnerable to malicious people.

Addendum: I checked to see whether Tour organizers are changing anything. I found no mention of the terrorist attacks. I did find this video about Lance Armstrong, however.
