The third stage will start in Cambridge and head to London via Epping Forest and complete a circuit of the Olympic Park before finishing on the Mall, where the 2012 Olympic road race ended.


Pretty cool - I wonder if they will stop for a cuppa at Carls!

I went to see it in canterbury when it came thru a few years ago, cant believe how quick the main peloton travels with so many bikes in a such a crowded environment.

I watched them on box hill during the Olympics they can go up hills faster than I can go on the flat phenomenal athletes

Agreed, I am always amazed watching the Tour going up the big climbs and then you see some fan try to run alongside them. thats when you really understand the pace they are going

What I find most ammazing is that likes of Mark Cavandish that can ride a stage that most of us would struggle to complete at all even if it was entirely flat and still manages to go flat out faster than the majority of the other riders
