Watch the Tour de France in London

Over the weekend, Yorkshire got its chance to witness the cyclists of the Tour de France, but today it comes to London, leaving Cambridge around noon and then heading south to Essex before entering London through Epping Forest, crossing Walthamstow and the Olympic Park, then heading for Docklands, the City and Westminster, for a spring finish in front of Buckingham Palace between 3.30 and 4pm.

There is also a 'Publicity Caravan' which passes through an hour or so before the cyclists, and there will be official 'Tour de France Fan Parks' at the Olympic Park, Trafalgar Square and Green Park with perks such as food and drink, cycling activities, a cinema and music. We're told to expect extra congestion if trying to travel as the race is passing through, so it's probably best to just stand still and watch for the cyclists flashing by.
