As nobody yet seems to have anything positive to say, I would like to say that it's brilliant that this race is passing through. If I could be off work, I would be there! Crowds may be a little less as it's a working day, but I hope this stage goes as well as the Yorkshire stages. Allez le Tour!

Just saw the cyclists zooming past my office in the City and it was quite a spectacle.
I had no idea how fast they went.

I also had no idea how many support cars there were!

don't worry, miserable people, it's all over now! You can get back to a normal life where nothing extraordinary ever happens. Somewhere in the region of 3.5 million people came out to see this. I think it's worth sacrificing one day of routine for that.

Well there has been some right miserable gits posting on here about the Tour De France, it has caused a bit of disruption for one day only. It will more than likely be the only time that this world wide watched event will be in Essex. l drove into Chelmsford this morning at 8.45, traffic so light less than an early sunday morning

Well said, Romantic and others, for putting the miserable gits in their place. I don't think they even mind about their boring routines being disturbed. They just wanted to moan about millions of people having a great day out.
Vive le Tour!

It's just a load of doped up cyclists riding through essex. You see that most weekends in basildon!!! Must be lucky if you lived on the route, at least the pot holes would have been filled in.

I think the only people moaning are the sad little minority who have nothing going on in their lives at all ! It's the TDF and all you lot act like It's invented purely to disrupt your day!

Get a life and some joy in your world. The best thing though was that it kept the white van Prats off our roads.... even if it was just 1 day!
