The Tour comes to town

The Tour of Britain rolled to a conclusion in London today, with some of the world’s top professionals competing in the 45 mile Stage 5 race around the streets of Westminster. The 30 degree heat did not deter the large crowds who lined the barriers of the 1 mile loop, though the free water handed out from vendor trikes proved very popular.

The inclusion of London’s cycle-mounted cops in the warm up parade lap made an interesting addition before the main business of the day got underway. Sadly, as I was at the last corner 400 metres from the finish and, at the time of writing, the Tour of Britain website is down, I am unable to report who won.
