So we headed off and soon arrived at Dundas where at the foot bridge Karen jumped off to dispose of the rubbish at the wharf, Jack and I continued to moor by the lift bridge for the Somerset Coal Canal.
Picking up Karen on we went across the magnificent Dundas Aqueduct and on into Conkwell Wood before mooring up just shy off Limpley Stoke Road Bridge No. 175
So we arrived in plenty of time walked up onto the hill a small way beyond the bridge. Being cycle race fans and multi Tour of Britain visitors we knew what to expect.
1st you get the sponsors vehicles coming through some handing out free bees.
2nd the officials judges etc.
3rd the police escort this is always fun as they move at a rate leapfrogging the race to keep the rolling road closure going.
Then we get to see the race proper even uphill the riders pass very quick, but we spotted the stars.
Followed up by the team support cars.
So back to the boat and coiled the ropes and on to our Over night mooring Bradford-on-Avon.
