Tour de Forty
By: Writer TBD. Possibly... you?
"Please, Take These Ideas" works like Chicago improv. We'll throw out an idea for a book/TV show/movie and from there whoever wants to take the idea, write it - hey, first come, first serve.
Here's the premise for "Tour de Forty" The main character is stuck in a dead-end job. He's not miserable, per se, but he's definitely bored. Every day feels like the same routine. Go to work. Stare at the computer. Come home.
Then he decides to start cycling for 10, 20, 30 miles each morning before work. He gets hooked. Buys a more expensive bike. Goes all in on the helmet, spandex, bike shirt. All leading up to a new goal for his 40th birthday: I'm going to enter the Tour de France.
How does his wife and kids handle their dad's new pursuit? Feel free to write what's next!
