Tour de Obvious

Catching up here, sorry:

Predictably, but disappointingly, the route for 2007's Tour de France prologue is a dull ride through Whitehall, up Victoria Street, Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch and finishing on the Mall. Ken and the orgnaisers have ignored my plea to make use of Herne Hill Cycle Stadium.

To make matters worse, the route out of London to Canterbury for the 1st stage also misses Herne Hill. Instead riders will have to put up usual cliched postcard sites - Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Greenwich. Dull.
