cycle race

Tarvin residents of all ages, including the Primary school, turned out to watch the Friends Life Tour of Britain cycle race whizz past our village on Monday. For many of us this was a one-off opportunity to see so many world class riders passing along the roads we walk and ride along every day.
Did you see Bradley Wiggins or Mark Cavendish?. Evidently Mark was suffering badly after his Stage 1 crash. For more information on the thrilling finish to today's stage click here.

Before the riders appeared we were treated to a procession of police motorbikes roaring up to the road junction where we were standing, stopping until the next bike in sequence appeared and then roaring off again. Reminded me of a relay race without any batons ! A couple of bikers even smiled for the cameras! Seemed to be a far better way to spend the day than chasing criminals.

An onlooker next to me thought there must be a police motorcycle race preceding the bike race as we counted the 20th police motorcycle pass by.

Everybody seemed to have their camera out so if you have any photos to share and keep in our photo gallery at Tarvinonline then please email them as usual to editor@tarvinonline.org
