Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

2007 Tour de France – Live

Posted by Matt | July 12, 2007 | Leave a comment

OK, I’ll admit we’re not about road riding.

But, in keeping with my promise last week to unearth interesting links to this year’s Tour de France I’ve come across this amazing mashup of Google Maps with the GPS output from the top riders on le Tour.

So during the course of a stage you can track your favourites online, including their speed, heart rate, cadence and power output. Now that’s impressive. Use the zoom on the left to view in more detail or zoom out to get an overview of the whole stage route.

Here’s the link to the Tour de France Live website.

I’ve also found a related feed on Twitter that gives a good feel for what’s happening at any particular time.

And another site that has good information on Tour activity is Masiguy.

Being on the fringe and looking in, I’ve found these sites pretty interesting. Hope others do too.

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
