# Le Tour de France #### Learning Objectives

By completing this challenge we are learning how to open and extract data from a text file, reading the file line by line. We will then use our program to make some calculations such as calculating the total distance of the race over 21 stages.

#### The Race

Le Tour de France is a cycling race that takes place over 21 stages (23 days in total, including two rest days). The text file below contains a list of the 21 stages as follows (based on the 2015 route):

Stage Number;Distance in km;Starting from;Arriving at letour.txt

#### The Code

Adapt this code to answer the following questions:

• What stage is the longest stage (in distance)?
• What stage is the shortest stage (in distance)?
• What is the average distance per stage?
• What is the total distance of the race in miles?
• Between stage 16 and stage 17, once in Gap, cyclists have a rest day. How many kilometres have they been cycling for? How many kilometres are left till the end of the race? #### Solution...
