Hello From London! Tour de France London Start

For the first time ever, the Tour de France started in London. This part of the race was mostly for show BUT what a show it was! I took this picture within 100 yards of my King's College dorm. The racers started at The Mall near Trafalgar Square on the north side of the Thames River, crossed Westminster Bridge to the south side of the Thames, then raced by me on Upper Ground (Street). Their sudden appearance caught me with my camera turned off so I wasn't able to get the leaders. But these guys were pretty close to the front.
