Tour of Britian

The final leg of the Tour of Britain took place on the streets of central London last Sunday. I must confess I knew nothing about it until I was trying to get to another 'Open House' visit and found the circuit had blocked my route. I got caught up in the excitement of it all. Some of the very young riders have a future of fame ahead of them. One young boy, must have been all of 8 was giving his father a run for his money. Racing ahead each time the circuit passed the compere's tent. Having now looked up information about this event I discover that it is a major event for elite athletes (as well as rising stars) that takes place over eight days.
It's worth reading about it on the web site here.

Aren't they going in the wrong direction? It feels wrong somehow.

It wasn't well advertised which is a shame.
