Russia:

I am sure everyone has heard of the “Tour de France”, 3349 km of fantastic cycling and supporters cheering them on. But did you know that the longest bike race in the world is actually 9103 km and needs to be completed in just 25 days?
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to watch them compete?
 
It is the Trans-Siberian indeed. 
 
The Trans-Siberian Extreme sees its competitors race across Russia, given the task of making it from one side of the world’s biggest country to the other in a little over three weeks. Riders begin in the country’s capital, Moscow, and finish in Vladivostok, near the border with North Korea on the Pacific coast. Using only pedal power, cyclists must ride 9,103km in just 25 days.
 
It may not have the relentless team tactics, sheer number of riders or hotly contested sprints as cycling’s grand tours, but it is a test of endurance in its purest form.
