Rochdale hosted the Tour de France last weekend albeit for only a few minutes but it defiantely caputred the imagination of the local people as well as many people who travelled into the borough to catch a glimpse of the Tour de France.

Tour de France 2014A last minute decision to brave the crowds, traffic control and the weather proved very fruitful last weekend. Making the 4.2 mile walk from our parking spot at Hollingworth Lake took longer than we expected. The weather didn't help whilst carrying the kit up Blackstone Edge Road as the sun got stronger the road seemed to get longer, but the many people, walking, cycling or on the bus all were full of excitment and in a carnival style mood. We also managed to find a really good position and the images have already gone out to press, media and the relevent organisations.
