Not long after the Men’s race had finished, workers started dismantling the barriers and putting back street furniture to the roads including some unusual removable traffic islands on Park Road.

    What a wonderful weekend of cycling with the climax at Hampton Court.
    A real community show of support, which I’m sure the cyclists appreciated. They can close the roads around here anytime as far as I’m concerned. Cyclists heaven.
