Planning a cycling tour using the internet for research offers pupils in Year 10 an ideal opportunity to consolidate previously learned language in a meaningful context. How far will they travel? Where will they stay? What will they see? Afterwards they could write up their trip in whichever language they are studying.
The Tour de France provides scope for teaching geography, dates and numbers. For a map and day-by-day schedule with distances see www.letour.fr2003presentationfrindex.html
