The Tour de Chateau D’iff?

An interesting story here about a Tour de France style ride by French Prisoners:

It must be hard going back inside prison after tasting such freedom – not just the freedom from prison but the freedom available to anyone when riding a bike in spectacular countryside. I’m wondering if mentally the prisoners had to wiegh this up when contemplating taking part – is it harder to taste a small bit of freedom then return inside or continue without it for the full length of your sentence?
