Le Grand Depart flythrough


I watched the Le Grand Depart of the Tour de France from the Square Mile this morning.

After securing my position at the top of Ludgate Hill I stood and waited patiently for about 50 minutes.

Then, pretty much in a blink of an eye, the caravan parade was riding up the hill, whizzing around the corner, and then heading on towards St Paul’s Cathedral en route to the first stage in Kent. It was a blur of colour — accompanied by cheering and clapping and the click-click of camera lenses!

All very exciting, if somewhat of a disappointment because it was all over so quickly…

  1. Hi there, Kimbofo. Saw your link on Michele’s and was very excited to follow it back: I’ve very much missed your voice!
    As an ardent cyclist and cycling fan, I find this very cool. Watching the tour, even for the fleeting second as it whizzes past, has long been a dream of mine. Perhaps someday.
    Until then, I’ll live vicariously through this experience of yours. Great picture, too!
