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.
