A quiet Sunday, no traffic, people lining the streets, all for the London Surrey Cycle Classic. 140 roadies go flying down Cross Deep. It was an impressive spectacle. Brief, but impressive. And it was no wonder that the team from the police was in the lead when the race reached Twickenham, they bloody cheated and put engines on their bikes!

So, how was it for you?
