The 2014 Tour de France

The 2014 Tour de France was the 101st edition of the Tour de France It started on 5 July in Leeds, England and concluded on 27 July in Paris France.

This was the first time the race had started or in fact been run in the UK. I was fortunate enough to see it on day three when it ran from Cambridge to London and passed through various villages close to me in north Essex.

I actually saw it in Wethersfield, my wife and I rode out there in the morning to see it come through around lunchtime. The village and surrounding roads were packed and there was very much a carnival type atmosphere.

Here are a few photos I took on the day.
