It seems that with Google Street View, you do not need to leave the comfort of your own home in order to pay a visit to faraway dream places, such as what we talked about at the end of last month when the entire Burj Khalifa was mapped out on Google Street View. This time around, it would be the 100th Tour de France that will benefit from Street View, as Google intends to bring you to all the cycling action (albeit from a distance) thanks to a special Google+ page, a YouTube site as well as an interactive site which will include Google Maps as well as Street View images.
The Tour de France Google+ page would come with a slew of daily updates concerning the race as well as the riders, offering insights into the happenings as well as some behind the scenes reels. The special “Your Tour” interactive page might be the most interesting one of the crop, where you can explore the race course via Google Maps and Street View images. Not only that, you are able to use the on-screen controls to scroll through the countryside that the course snakes through, now how about that?
