On Monday, 10th September we were lucky enough to have the Tour of Britain fly passed our place, we saw all the stars such as Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Luke Rowe and all the British Sky Team.  We couldn't believe how many people came out to see them come down our hill, there was what looked like all of Heanor Gate's Seniors.  There was at least 40 Police Motorbikes riding in front performing a rolling road closure and the entourage that followed was beyond belief and that didn't include the team coaches which had already gone ahead to Knowsley Safari Park.  Although it was over with in a very short time it was well worth making the effort to go out and wait for it.
