Tour de France Prologue
A bunch of us found our way down to Hyde Park a couple of weekends ago to watch the Prologue of the Tour de France. It was quite spectacular watching the various competitors race against the clock in one minute intervals. We perched ourselves at the top corner of the course, just before they turned to hurtle down the Serpentine, down towards the place where the ruler of our empire lives (when she just HAS to be in London, it's so dreary and full of commoners you know), and up to the finish line in The Mall.
Of course, we furnished ourselves with ample provisions, and ate and drank our way merrily until the sun went down.
There's an album full of pics (action shots by Dave) here.
