A solution to last week's challenge can be found here!
The Tour de France is one of the most grueling competitions on the planet. Each year, incredibly fit athletes push the limits of human endurance to traverse some 3000+ kilometers (2000 miles) over about a three-week period ON A BIKE. Just finishing the race is an incredible achievement. But what do birds think about all this?
In this challenge, use Designer and data from the 2017 Tour de France to determine how long the race was, as the crow flies. That’s right, calculate how far the race would be for a bird flying all stages of the race.
This solution treated race days that started and ended in the same city as 0 km covered. Travel outside of racing was not included either (i.e. if the destination of one leg did not match the next leg’s origin, that distance was not included.
If the birds didn't fly to the next leg's origin, when the destination of the previous leg was different, then did they ride in the teams' vans?
What's a "Bike" and how many horsepower does it have!
@David-Carnes . Maybe they take the Train
