Mark S Well I did it; fully completed the mapmyride challenge too; here are stats http://www.mapmyride.com/challenges/challenge/59/?name=architectmark
Running from Saturday Sunday 1st July - Sunday 22nd July 2012, the Tour de France is made up of 21 stages and covers a total distance of 3,430.5 kilometres.
But that's just crazy. So instead - challenge yourself to simply get on your bike for 30 mins a day, every day the riders are out on the road. It is however compulsory to day dream you're competing on a summit finish, crowd surrounding you...
Get on your bike every day of the Tour de France Challenge rules
- You get 2 rest days, just like they do on the Tour, so 21 days cycling in total
- Minimum of 30 mins cycling
- Can be indoor or outdoor bike
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“Success! Most of my rides were pretty late at night and both my bikes have both developed niggles that I have been doing my best to ignore. I spent about 15 minutes last night trying to pedal with one foot on flat pedals to debug an annoying click. The problem seems to be the left hand crank which has developed a knock under load. ”
