The Tour de France is definitely the greatest cycling event in the world, covering more than 2200 miles of French countryside. All bicyclists worldwide consider going to France to take part in the Tour as the greatest phase in their cycling careers. The Tour is the one cycling event where news outlets provide the event to countless viewing biking enthusiasts. The Tour de France is twenty-three days. Every stage of the Tour traverses idyllic French communities which depict the beauty with the countryside. Many of the visitors go on holidays to view the race and see the French countryside. In certain years, the Tour goes cross the border of Italy or Spain. You can find generous holiday packages that can take you to a wide variety of destinations to watch the race. Travel offers are the most useful approach to reserve resort rooms close to the Tour route.

There are many reasons exactly why this cycle race is among the most esteemed cycling race in the world. For starters, it’s the oldest bicycle event in the world. No other cycling race predated the Tour de France, therefore we can say that most of the laws and events of bicycling tours originated from this tour. It is usually probably the most gruelling cycle race and also the most mentally demanding race of any sports event. Bike riders need to ride the extreme mountains and then through winding roads to complete the race.

Despite the success of the event, it is going to long be remembered from the drug tainted victories by Lance Armstrong. His repetitive denials, fabrications and threats long maintained his drug use and cheating hidden. He was in the end exposed by whistle blowers that exposed him at great risk to themselves. Lance Armstrong finally admitted what he did and the wins had been taken out of him. Regrettably the Tour de France will be scared from this and remembered for this. Hopefully time can cure that harm. It damaged the reputation of cycling for a very long time.
