The Long Wait ..... - TDF

By SlowSong
.... in the cold and rain. Just before the cyclists arrived it chucked it down with rain and those lucky enough to be under the bridge got away with it, although it was very cold at this point. Just a few snaps here of people waiting, and waiting and - V3, afterwards.

I just wanted to get on the tube and go home so I didn't hang around.

Great images, thanks for sharing. The poor little blight in the Carrier Bag looks terrified...

V1 - Saw a lot of this! Someone (generally small and male) shells out 20 for a goodies bag and then feels compelled to don the whole lot at once.

I do like that Lidl outfit in V1!! Grin A great set of candids of the event Chris - it certainly seems to have attracted more people than the Olympic Torch route did Wink

You'd think they would have got him something more than a Lidl bag for cover. Waitrose or M&S at least!!... Grin

Grin That's what caught my eye in the first place, Dave. At least it was mainly yellow.
