Transport Commissioner for London, Peter Hendy said:

"With estimates of over two million spectators in London over the weekend, and initial estimates thought to number a further through million through Kent, this has been a phenomenal success for all involved.

"It shows once again that the UK can not only attract large events but that we have the skills and infrastructure to deliver them to a world class standard.

"This has also been a superb advertisement for cycling, not just at the elite sporting level but for the profile of cycling in general. I believe that the Tour has helped in our push to see many more Londoners helping to accelerate and deepen the cycling renaissance that the capital is already experiencing."

London mayor Ken Livingstone was cheered at every one of his multiple appearances at Le Tour. Cyclesport fans shouted 'Well done, Ken" and "Thanks" at every opportunity.

BikeBiz was at the Tour this weekend and will be reporting on this online and in the August magazine.
