Tour of Britain 2007
A recent highlight of cycling in Reading was the
start of Stage 1 of the Tour of Britain. Reading CC were at
the heart of the action, organising a race for folding bicycles
after the Professionals had left the stadium.
Our General Secretary Roy Booth was interviewed during the
morning by Maggie Philbin on BBC Radio Berks. On which subject,
on the right we have Dean Bond, Roy himself and Colin Bates
manning the RCC stall on the race morning.
