So much more than watching 172 lycra-clad men cycling over 2000 miles, it is the ultimate in self sacrifice. Find out more on this study dayOnce you understand the tactics, the different aims, the fact that the riders ride as a team, that the result will be decided by a few seconds, you realise the ultimate drama that is the Tour de France. This study day – incorporating watching the grand depart – will enable you to do that, also reflecting on the theological aspects of the struggle: no event glorifies vicarious suffering so vividly, or self-sacrifice for others so nobly, or the spiritual nature of the quest or pilgrimage so revealingly.
