Google's Tours the Tour de France
Google has released a new interactive site that allows you to experience the Tour de France using Google Maps and Street View.
Your Tour allows you to switch between a map of the current stage route and an interactive Street View tour of the route. The Street View option requires you to scroll down on the page to progress through the stage. The effort is worth it though as you get your own first person view of the stage route as you furiously scroll down the page.
Each of the stages appears to be locked until the actual date that the stage is scheduled to be raced. Today you get the chance to view the route from Saint Girons to Saint Bagneres de Bigorre.
