Every year, the international and insanely famous Tour de France bike race kicks off, with beautiful routes through France (of course!) as well as other countries – the UK, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland to name a few!
Though as of yet the Tour de France hasn’t come to Ireland, that’s not to say Ireland doesn’t have beautiful cycling routes.
While few people are privileged enough to participate in the Tour de France, the epic race is a huge motivator when it comes to biking. While you might not be competing in the Tour de France, go ahead and let yourself be energised by the trifecta of competition, a beautiful backdrop and long distance biking.
It’s okay to feel jealous, motivated and even a little intimidated. Though you’re not doing the Tour de France, there’s nothing stopping you from doing a long distance biking trip of your own.
So if the annual Tour de France competition has inspired you to start biking longer distances, consider coming to Ireland for your upcoming long distance biking journey!
