The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
Roadside art by farmers along the Tour de France route
France is the world's most visited country, with about 80 million tourists each year, 10 million more than second place United States. One factor drawing visitors is the beautiful views of the French countryside during the Tour de France. In France it is a big honor to have the race pass through your city or region. Many of the farmers along the route create displays like the one shown above, from the 2014 Tour de France. This one had farm tractors creating the motion of the wheels. Here's a video of a similar design from 2011 in action.
