All this month, JetBlue is letting cycling fans bring along their two-wheelers for free. The carrier said it was waiving its regular bike transport fee of $50 each way to celebrate the Tour de France.

The carrier is broadcasting wall-to-wall coverage of Lance Armstrong and gang for a seventh year in a row on the seatback TVs of all its flights. The coverage is on VERSUS, the TV home of the 23-day Tour de France in the U.S.

The free bike deal is available through July 31, on all flights except those to and from the Dominican Republic (due to baggage restrictions in the DR). There are specific packing requirements -- you can't just ride to the airport and turn over your bike.

According to jaunted.com, JetBlue was already more "bike-friendly" than some carriers, that charge $200 and sometimes even more to bring a bike on a plane.
