So, after a process that kicked off when I first saw that the 4th stage of the 2017 Tour of Britain was going to finish in my home town back in April, tomorrow I will be manning a stall in the race village with my work, doing recruitment and PR stuff.
It took a lot of effort to persuade them, but here we now are. I'm just worried it will all go horribly wrong and I will end up looking like an utter idiot.
As a prelude, there have been junior races taking place in the market square tonight. As was pretty predictable Rain + Cobbles = loads of kids flying off their bikes. My friend's son got a bit of a clonk on the head, but all ok.
As ever, it was good to see public space being used productively. Hopefully more of the same tomorrow, as I rubberneck the pro riders as they pass by the stall.
They might even decide to abandon life as a pro cyclist and decide to become a fork lift truck driver!
