You can follow real-time messages from Tour de France riders on twitter — without having to sign up for a twitter account yourself.

Just log onto Cyclingtweets – Tour de France 2010 at http://cyclingtweets.com. The super-simple user interface enables you to select a feed that includes 140-character tweets from all riders, or pick a country: Australia, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain and the United States.

A list of all 19 riders on twitter –  including @lancearmstrong and @LeviLempheimer of @TeamRadioShack — is included. So, if you’ve got a twitter account, you can follow your favorites from the link within the app. (Also commune with your fellow fans via these hashtags: #tourdefrance and #tdf.)

For iPhone users, type this URL http://iphone.cyclingtweets.com into your Safari browser.

Note: Luxembourg appears as a separate category on the web app, but not on the iphone app. However, in the latter, the Schleck brothers of Luxembourg, @Andy_Schleck and @schleckfrank of team @saxobank, do show up in the All riders feed and on the All twitter accounts list.
