Why It's On The List
  • A bicycle team racing game that "simulates" drafting, the pelleton, breaking away & a whole bunch of other bike racing things... without ever bogging down in rules nonsense or chrome. And it's a barrel of laughs to play!
Tips & Tricks:
  • You really should play multiple races to get the full feel of the game...
  • ...but don't bother with the yellow jersey rule, which we've never been able to completely figure out.
  • Budget your cards wisely - esp. if you're racing on a course with hills.
  • Here's what I wrote about the game for The One Hundred: both my personal entry and the group entry.
  • The picture at the top of the page is (sadly) not my own - with so many of my games packed into storage right now, I couldn't get to Um Reifenbreite. This photo is from popmayhem's Flickr account.
