Don’t forget that the Tour de France (#TdF) will be winding its way through our local area this Monday. Full details can be found at http://www.letouressex.com/ . The race is expected to arrive in Essex at 12:42pm and cycle through Saffron Walden about 10 minutes later. Then it is through the countryside and villages before reaching Chelmsford at 2pm and finally leaving Essex later just before 3pm.
The roads and public transport are likely to be congested or potentially even closed throughout the day, so it is definitely worth checking the website before making plans on Monday. An easy way to keep on top of the traffic is to watch the @Essex_Travel twitter feed throughout the day.
If you are out and about watching the race as it weaves through our county then we hope you have a great time. For those in the Great Sampford keep an eye out for our very own Geoff Wakelin from Intercounty Saffron Walden who is helping Marshall the area.
