Tour time – why follow it

A quick explanation of how the cycling tour works, plus T shirts for tour fans and supporters.

How does the tour work?

Rules are fun! If you know the rules, you’ll understand the sport.  This massively applies to the tour. 

How is it that riders cross the line first, but don’t win? Why is the event lots of teams, but individuals win? How far do they ride? What are the different coloured jerseys about? When do they eat and go to the loo?
