4. First Time Riders. If you ask these riders at the end of the Tour, you will usually find them at either end of the fun meter - they either enjoyed the Tour and vows to come back next year, or they totally missed the fun part and swear that this is their first and last Tour. You will seldom find the first time rider in the middle of the meter, saying that the Tour was just, well, ok for them. Those who enjoyed the ride are mostly ecstatic and over-enthusiastic in their praise and in describing their first Tour. On the other hand, those who did not enjoy will tell you horror stories on how their bikes broke down and nobody, not even the Marshals were there to help them. Or worse, they were injured because of a careless cyclist or they lost a helmet or some treasured bike accessories.
