Maps for the Best: the 2008 Tour De France

From July 5th to July 24th the best bikers in the world will be eating croissants, climbing hills, and trying to avoid crashes in what some call the most grueling challenge in all of sport, the Tour de France. How, might you ask, are you and I, Mr. Joe-q-commuters, connected to the Tour? By information. Just like the pro’s need maps and information to navigate the course in a safe and efficient manner, we need maps to tell us how to navigate our city streets. Below are links to Tour and Community sites dedicated to the same task, educating cyclist.
