Over the weekend we saw two and half million people lining the streets of Yorkshire to get a glimpse of the Tour de France speeding past. Organisers say another million watched yesterday for the stage from Cambridge to Central London. The race director , Christian Prudhomme says it will return to Britain in the future after hosting the "grandest Grand Depart" in the events history....But will the Tour inspire more of us to get on two wheels? Or are cyclists an inconvenience on our roads rather than a cause of celebration?
