Tour de France passes King's

The Tour de France passed by King's yesterday, cheered on by crowds of spectators. There was fine weather and a festive atmosphere, with people perched on roofs and standing on walls, waving flags and applauding as the cyclists rolled past.

Yesterday marked the third stage of the tour, which started from Gonville Place by Parker’s Piece at 12.15. The riders went by Cambridge landmarks like St John's College, Trinity College and Great St Mary's Church before passing King's itself.

They then headed for London via Trumpington, Great Shelford and Hinxton.
