The city centre was buzzing with activity. There were many dance and musical performances at various spots.
The Peace Gardens had a giant screen showing the race.
And we managed to find a good view of the race itself, just by the 10 km to go banner.
There was a parade of cars prior to the arrival of the cyclists. Some were giving away freebies.
|Look what I got!|
As expected, the cyclists went past as such a speed it that was difficult to spot our favourite riders, let alone photograph them.
But it was a fun occasion and I'm glad we were there.
We'll be watching all the remaining stages on the television at home, which will definitely provide a better view but will probably be lacking in atmosphere - bring out the yellow bunting!
