Tour Of Britain

This morning the Tour of Britain came through the village. The traffic was stopped and what seemed like one police motorbike per county went through the village, then after 20 minutes of waiting 30 bikes appeared and disappeared in a flash. A whole host of support cars, ambulances and finally more police cars went through. The must have closed the main road for over 30 minutes for the 20 seconds it took the bikers to arrive at the centre of the village, turn hard right and leave!

A few lucky children got a few polka-dot hats. I'm told when the Tour de France came through the village the organisers were much more generous with the freebies.
