In "The Body in the Tower" I talk about the peloton. For those who do not know, the peloton is the main body of cyclists in a race. Breakaways happen when a few cyclists ride ahead of that main group. Since they are pedaling at speeds of around 25 to 30 miles per hour, helicopters are used to film the peloton. Here's a shot of the peloton taken this past Monday during the Paris : Nice race.
The peloton in the Tour de France is much larger, usually starting out with 125 -145 riders. That's a lot of men on bikes. By the time the Tour gets to Paris and those men are riding down the Av. des Champs-Élysées that number has been whittled down to around 110. That's still a lot of men on bikes. Just think of that. It's almost enough to give one the vapors.
