'Tour de Penge'

 The annual ‘Tour de Penge’ cycle ride took place today and I went along to sketch while the cyclists were preparing for ‘Le Grand Depart’.  Men, women, children and, even a dog in the back of a trailer, set off to ride to Greenwich.  The event, started several years ago by a local resident, is part of the Penge Festival and you can see a full list of events here
