Tractors Make Moving ‘Bike Tapestry’ At Tour de France

Dozens of moving tractors create a giant work of moving field art, captured from a helicopter view at the opening stage of the 103rd Tour de France.

Why carve designs into perfectly good real estate when you can just get 20 of your friends to lend their heavy machinery to a massive pop-up art display?

Since at least 2011, this unique spectacle has graced the landscape of the Tour’s early stages.
