Down your street? Tour 2007

Racing on the Mall

The roads that Stage One of the Tour de France will race down on 8 July 2007
were revealed by Transport for London on January 15.
.
The Grand Départ of the Tour de France, the world’s largest annual sporting
event, will be visiting London for the first time during the weekend of 6-8
July 2007.

The Prologue and Stage One of the famous race will take place
on closed sections of the Capital’s streets. The Prologue on Saturday 7 July
will be an eight kilometre (five miles) lap of central London, starting on Whitehall,
taking in some of London’s most famous landmarks including Whitehall, the Houses
of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, and finishing on the Mall.

Stage One, on Sunday 8 July
, will start in central London, passing
close to a variety of historic and contemporary sites including Big Ben, the
London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Gherkin and crossing Tower Bridge close
to City Hall. The race will then travel through Bermondsey, Deptford, Greenwich
and Erith before heading out into Kent. In Kent the Tour will pass through Dartford,
Gravesend, Medway, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Ashford before
the stage finish in Canterbury.

The riders will be preceded by the publicity caravan, which is a huge carnival
with floats and vehicles from the race’s sponsors providing music and freebies
to spectators. There will also be a range of events happening throughout the
weekend to welcome the Tour de France to the capital.

The race will be run on closed roads, with the roads closed for several hours
(longer for roads on the Prologue route), with some additional parking controls
in place on and near the race route. Transport for London are encouraging people
living on or near the route to visit www.tourdefrancelondon.com
and to keep an eye on their local media nearer to the event to find out further
details about the impact on the local area.

The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said: "The Tour de France is so much
more than a cycle race and creates a carnival atmosphere wherever it visits.
The Tour will be great for London, showcasing the UK capital to the world, bringing
huge amounts of visitors to London and encouraging more Londoners to take to
two wheels."

"TfL will be working hard, with the emergency services and borough councils,
to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum so everyone can enjoy this fantastic
free-to-view event safely. The Grand Départ website www.tourdefrancelondon.com
will provide frequent updates on local events and road closures."
