End of the 2010 Tour

The 2010 Tour Down Under finished yesterday with overall victory going to Germany's Andre Greipel. The event once again was hailed a resounding success, with thousands of spectators lining the routes to cheer on the riders; many of them travelling from interstate and overseas bringing many tourist dollars to the State.

Another spinoff was the increase in numbers of cyclists riding in and around the City; for fitness and leisure. On Friday 8,000 amateur cyclists participated in a personal challenge; the Mutual Community Challenge Tour.

I hope none of the riders finished up like this; one of the many decorations along the route!
