This just landed in my inbox from one of my workmates... The test run of the Olympic road race takes place on Sunday 14 August. Lots of the Tour de France riders will be taking part. 129 miles. Route here: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/20027.aspx It looks like some of Box Hill is closed unless you have a wrist band.... http://www.elmbridgetoday.co.uk/News/Box-Hill-cycle-race-wristbands-0000000574.aspx However lots of other places, notably Richmond Park and Bushy Park will be open. For those with children it can be quite a spectacle to watch (albeit relatively brief!) and if the sun is out could be worth a picnic etc.
