Tour of Britain 2012
By the time the Tour reached Little Eaton a small group had broken away and had a lead of several minutes. The two photos show respectively the lead group and the main bunch as they approach Little Eaton from Coxbench.
It was great to see so many people had turned out to watch - school children in their organised "crocodiles", cyclists in their gear and people of all ages who came out of their houses to stand on the road edge, particularly around the corners. A number of the spectators had driven to the old Little Chef car park at the bottom of Abbey Hill and walked into LE.
