It was a beautiful warm day and the air was filled with excitement in anticipation of the imminent arrival of the Tour of Britain Bike Race cyclists. This was Stage 6 of the long race from Bath to Hemel Hempstead. The crowds lined the streets of Hungerford to catch a glimpse of the riders taking part.
The police on their big BMW motorbikes riding ahead, making sure all the roads were clear of traffic, together with the race marshalls on their motorbikes, all added to the spectacle that was about to arrive. Suddenly, there was a great cheer from the top of the High Street and within seconds, cheers rang out from everywhere as they rode through our beautiful market town. Everyone was amazed by the speed they were travelling at - they were magnificent!
