As everyone but the BBC knows the Tour of Britain did a tour of Britain last week.
I managed to accompany them for the first half of said tour visiting such far flung and exotic locations as Scotland, Carlisle, Kendal, The Lake District and leafy Cheshire. Unfortunately after stage three I had to leave them to their own devices. They seemed to cope however and in the process produced a superb race showcasing the wonderful and diverse scenery that our island is blessed with. A deserving victor in Steve Cummings ensued and everyone went home happy.
In a random order here is my photographic story.
