The Tour de France kicks-off on Saturday. This year you and your students can virtually cycle along with the world's best cyclists. Cycling the Alps which I reviewed in May has developed maps for all twenty stages of the tour. You can zoom in on the course, see the elevation profiles of the stages, and navigate through the stages.
Applications for Education
The navigation is a little rough but virtually cycling The Tour de France could be a fun way for students to explore the geography of the course. Start here with stage one.
