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.

Riders giving the thumbs up

Olive Cromwell's ghostWas it real or just a figment of their fevered imaginations, brought on by the spooky surroundings of the misty moor, the well-known setting for Conan Doyle's 'The Hounds of the Baskervilles'? It turned out to be none other than Oliver Cromwell (photo below), come back in bodily form, just to see them off from Bovey Tracey.
