Tour de France Google Streetview   (+10)  [vote for, against]

If a Google Streetview car travelled with the Tour de France 'caravan' (all the cars that go through before the cyclists) there would be a full set of imagery for the route, with cheering spectators, signage etc., which could be used on video-projection screens around static bicycle trainers to make it seem like you're riding the Tour.

Not quite what you are after but it does the link up with Google maps. [DrBob, Jul 11 2014]

Isn't google required to blur faces in European Street View? That would kind of put a damper on the "cheering spectators" bit. Otherwise, bun.

Blue faces? I can't see what the fascination is with the tour de france esp the bit in the UK!

Yes - it's part of a sponsorship deal by the creators of Smurfs

Sorry- "blur" fixed.

(I looked for serveral minutes for a slur. Glad you fixed it. Was hoping that was not the case.)

The idea would be cool. +

Maybe some pics covered with a pop-up "Caution - you won't be able to un-see this. [look] [skip]"

It's get a bun if you can replace all the French bits of scenery with, for example, English bit of scenery...

As they are going into the final straight (background over-written by images of Hyde Park corner/Marble Arch or summat)
