TGIF!! On July 4th, the 2015 Tour de France bicycle race begins!!
Started in 1903, the race is a three-week long one. Each year it a different route. This year’s route is said to be full of booby traps!!
The total distance is 3,360 km or nearly 2088 miles!! To put that in perspective, that’s the distance from New York City to Mexico City!!
You can watch the event, which goes until July 26th, on NBCSports: http://tourdefrance.nbcsports.com/.
