The Tour de France… In London!

Posted in London on July 8th, 2007 by Coffee

For some reason (presumably to do with large amounts of cash) the Tour de France started in London this year.  And, just like the marathon, all the mad guys on bikes came pretty much past our house.  Well, not quite as close as the marathon, but close enough so we felt we had to go down and have a look.

A lot of standing around in the hot sun (for a change!  yay!) and then they raced past in a few minutes.  Not that they were actually racing at the time, merely heading down to the start at Greenwich.


That all started a good day of sport.  British Grand Prix, Tour de France stage, and Wimbledon mens’ final.  All on a sunny day that we should be outside in the sun, but what can you do?!

All Four

Now that the Zimbabwe Bird Peppers have started ripening, you can see all 4 types together.


Now I just have to pluck up the courage to grab a knife and fork and taste them all to get some idea of what they taste like, and how hot they are!
