It’s a sporting event that has gained legions of fans from the United Kingdom, America, Australia and South Africa over the last decade. Traditionally a French spectacle, the Tour de France bicycle race is now a truly international event appealing to people the world over. This year’s Tour includes racers from America, England, China, Japan, Russia, Australia and Canada, as well as 28 other countries. This year’s 22-day race started on 5 July in Yorkshire, England under sunny skies. Over two million fans lined the route on the first day alone! The Tour doesn’t end until Sunday 27 July so there’s still time to catch the cycling fever. It’s contagious and a great chance to encourage the young people in your life to take up cycling or just to get active!
