Le tour de France in Cambridge

Stage three of the Tour de France started in Cambridge today and we went down to see them cycle past.  We had to wait around for quite a while for the riders, so it was lucky that the weather was beautiful. There  was a great atmosphere in the crowd too, high fives from the British motorcycle police and even a smile from the French Gendarmes.  Being near the start all the riders were still together and passed us in about 30 seconds; luckily I wasn't trying to match the bikes up to my anatomy of a bike print!  I did like all the different colours the riders wore and they were a grand sight as the sped past us.  Well worth the wait.
