Extra car parking has been set up as roads are to be blocked off for the event.

Barriers are already in position, the arrows show the cyclists the route.
And as for the Bundle of Dubz.... here are a couple of photos I took.
No - this one is not in need of repair. This VW is known as a 'Ratty' and it is meant to look rusty and like this. People go to great lengths to achieve this look!
In contrast, this is an iconic 'split screen' VW that has been slightly modified! As the information below shows, it has been shortened by 4ft 10 inches but what it lacks in size it makes up for in engine. I believe the photo below was taken at Santa Pod race track. It's raring to go!!
As for our camper - it does not stand out like these. It was designed for practically, comfort and as an every-day vehicle . It is a second home-on-wheels and we get away in it as much as we can. And while we did not expect to be placed, for a bit of fun we decided to enter the 'Show and Shine' competition. The added information on our entry said:
'We didn't plan to enter, so no shine - just show!'
Needless to say we didn't come anywhere, but it was a fun day made memorable by the le Tour de France route. And it was all the better because it was unexpected. I love it when that happens!
