Ventured out to the roadside to watch the Tour de France pass with Barry & Sue Badcock. Even though the crowds were thin where we were ay Sawston (lack of exciting roundabout or sharp bend and of course no hill!) it was exciting to see the Tour for the first time. I was surprised to see how big the gap between the Tete de la Course and the Pelotan had already grown - 3 minutes after about 25 minutes cycling. I was also pleased to see that Dave Brailsford travels in style! After the main race had passed there was a group of Cambridge cyclists lapping up the applause and even a guy on the most impractical bike that I've ever seen!
