How will the cyclists manage, if all the roads are closed?

Are they doing the Tour du Trottoir?

...if you press it, they will come.

and Tube stations have a good leaflet with a map.

It is either stay at home time or get out of London on Friday!

Really useful map, thanks.

The signs on Constitution Hill and around Buck. Ho. say that they will be open on Friday until noon, and then will be closed.

...if you press it, they will come.

where do you think will be the best place to watch the tour? i was thinking of the intersection of tower bridge road and tooley street...if the sun shines we can all pretend we are in the dordogne or the hills of the auvergne! allez les bleues...(pass the calvados)

During the Marathon, the intersection itself was pretty jam-packed BUT 300m or so along Jamaica Road (around Shad Thames) was reasonably quiet. Also, some handy cafes and mini-markets because, at the risk of jinxing the weather, we are promised sun and 24 degrees on Sunday so spectating will be thirsty work!!

I live between Mill Street and Dockhead, and am planning on watching from the end of Dockhead. It's usually quieter there (from marathon watching experience), just by the church, than closer to Mill Street/Shad Thames.

Map showing route in SE1 and Tour-related local events

(If anyone knows of any local pubs/restaurants/cafes/shops etc doing something special for the Tour, let me know and I'll add them to the map.)
