    I managed to get right at the front of the race course where it started literally next to the cyclists.

    I went into town yesterday. But unfortunately i missed the cyclists. It was so busy and it was hard to even get through the roads.

    I didn’t have chance to go since I was organising my Birthday Party :(. I still enjoyed watching it on TV thought. It looked very tiring. Allez Tour de France!

    Unfortunately I didn’t go to see the cyclists but I heard free objects like hats and key rings were being thrown out into the crowd.

    It was great but I waited there for two hours, and then they went past in a matter of seconds! It was GREAT.

    I went to the Tour de france and it was worth waiting for 2hrs. I had fun because there were some pretty cool sponsers like, I got a haribo packet which was cool.

    p.s. The scariest thimg was that my foot nearly got run over by a cyclist!

    On Saturday I was walking through town and there was loads and loads of people as there was a big van with a huge tv, with the Tour De France on.

    I went to the grand depart at the race course and there was only one person in between me and the man wearing the yellow jersey.Also when the riders were signing in i have to say that Chris Froom definitely got the biggest round of applause.

    I only saw the helmets whizz by as it was very crowded.

    I walked into town with my dad and sister at 11, just when it started at the Knavesmire. We came quite close to the bikes, but all I saw was the crowd’s heads! Well, at least we made the effort. 🙂

    I watched it near my Granny’s house.I had to lean back it was that close. I saw Madame Steunou there with her daughter.Over all it was a good day out.

    On the 5th of July I went to Harrogate and saw the finish of the first part. And the next day I stood outside the art gallery and my Dad bought me the fan pack!!
