Great turn out in Hertford after watching the race on ITV4.... I think we did Hertford proud and hopefully we will attract more sport events

Here's my video that I did on the day.... http://youtu.be/-GKkJXmMHIM

Nice video.

I watched the tour coming through Hertford Heath.

I tried to count the number of police motorbikes coming thorough but gave up after 30..... apparently a lot of them were down from Yorkshire, using the women's tour as a practice run for the TDF.

It was great to see so many people out supporting the event on Saturday - there was a wonderful atmosphere. The crowds up Port Hill were incredible. I dragged my kids along in the hope that it would inspire them, although I suspect they actually enjoyed the police motorbikes more.

32 according to my mother which seems a lot more than I remember for the olympic torch event. And yes, they were from forces all over - the logistics of the road closures was a year in the planning according to my neighbour who works at the police headquarters.

I rather suspect that might have been one or maybe two days a month for a year rather than 365 days work? ;)

The Women's Tour of Britain is passing through Hertford again this year - stage 4 on Saturday 20th June. They clearly love Port Hill!
