Jailbirds Tour De France!

 

Updated : Jun 4, 2009

In a prision break out of the most unique kind nearly 200 French prisoners will take to their bikes in the first ever penal Tour de France.

The 194 inmates, escorted by 124 prison guards and sports instructors, will set off from Lille and cycle about 2,400km (1,500 miles), ending up in Paris.

They will have to cycle in a pack, will not be ranked and, for obvious reasons, breakaway sprints will not be allowed.

Prison authorities say they hope the race will help the inmates learn values such as team work and self esteem.

The prisoners, all serving jail terms of between five and 10 years, will make stopovers in 17 different towns, each of which has a jail.

VeryHappyPig says we heard bad things about going to jail in places like Thailand and China, but it seems the French prision system is the worst. Imagine all that cycling? Now thats just torture at its worst!

Pictured below is the real Tour De France, none of those shown are criminals of any kind.
