Stage: 1 – 1 July : Paris – Lyon, 467 km

For the 1903 Tour de France – Stage 1 there were 79 riders entered in the race. Only 60 turned up at the start of which only 37 would finish the first stage into Lyon the following day.

The bikes weighed about 12 kilos and were fixed wheel. The rear wheel had a sprocket each side. One big and one small. Riders would have to remove the wheel and flip it around and then refit it to change gear. As the wheels were fixed, they had to pedal down hill. Bikes were without lights and had one brake on the front. Riders had to carry all their own spares and tools.
