When ride leader Jim Brown hatched a plan to combine a 60-mile ride from Hertfordshire to Essex to watch the Tour de France on Monday 7 July, he wasn't sure if it would come together. Happily it did - and very successfully, with a peloton of 20 riders and Jim acting as their 'super domestique'.

Le Tour - a spectator's view

Kittel wins Stage 1 Tour de France.

I am fortunate enough to have a brother who lives in one of the towns that the Tour de France passed through: Ilkley, which is just a 45-minute walk from Addingham – the town so good the tour passed through it twice. So I watched the tour whizz by on both Saturday and Sunday.
