Tour of Britain races through Cumbria

The Tour of Britain passed through the Lake District, with crowds filling Ambleside and neighbouring towns along the route to cheer the riders on.

The group rode 225km from Carlisle to Kendal in very damp conditions in what was the longest ever stage of the tour.

Riders included Olympic Gold Medalist, and Tour de France champion, Bradley Wiggins and sprinting supremo Mark Cavendish (although he did not win the sprint in Kendal!)
