stage 3 of the tour started today in… Chard… where i live!!
Chard is famous for being the birthplace of powered flight…. and also for the invention of artificial limbs. But today… we had cyclists in tights!
Mark and I volunteered our services and helped our kids’ school take year 5 and 6 to go and see it (about 140 kids!). It was all v exciting… not quite the tour de France (that we saw earlier this year) as pouring with rain but hey… it was groovy.
I especially liked all the police motorbikes… loads of ’em… reminded me of ‘Chips’ (american police drama of days of olde!)
